Illustration for today: Called The Exorcism, this miniature illustration comes from the personal prayer book (breviary) of the Duc du Berry by the Limbourg brother’s studio. It dates from 1416. Reserved for the Third Sunday in Lent in the prayer book, the details of this piece bring us a serious looking Jesus (dressed in purple in the front left) casting out a demon from a younger person being held by their mother by pronouncing a blessing. The dark shadow of a dragon, symbolizing the demon, floats over the head of the person while a crowd of onlookers stand in awe at the power of Jesus.
