Panel 10 - Maurille kills the serpent and heals the shepherd
Note the dead snake flopped along the bottom of the frame. Although I could not locate a specific reference to this episode in the standard version of Maurille's vita, it is the kind of miracle that attached itself to numerous local bishop saints - and doubtless brought a degree of comfort to many an agricultural labourer working in the kind of terrain where adders were abundant.
