Rouen, Prioress and Young Woman

Bride and darling wife Nun and witch

The text says abbess and noblewoman, but the picture does in fact depict the prioress and the young woman. In order not to use the same woodcut twice in a row, the publisher, Guillaume de la Mare in Rouen, then moved the prioress and the young woman far back in the dance, just like the publishers did in Troyes. There's a larger version here: Prioress and young woman.
