Egerton, Ms. 2019

Clermont Horae

The big scene shows the burial of a corpse with ossuaries in the background. The little pictures in the margin shows the preparation: Sewing up the body, the mass for the dead and the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
At the bottom, Death comes riding on a black horse (or unicorn?) and attacks pope, emperor, king and a noble lady with a big dart.
