Henry Perche: The Healing of a Woman with the Falling Sickness.

This page from the 'Book of the deeds of the Magister Saint Luis' from Normandy shows in several individual episodes the healing of a woman who has been "unable to stand upright" since the second year of her life. Three seizures in different stages are depicted, then her parents making prayers of supplication, and finally the healed woman. The outer frame depicts the inside of a cathedral.
