Panel 15 - An angel lays low the troop sent to arrest Andrew (scene 2 of 3)
Description:
From Gregory of Tours, chapter 9:
"Thence proceeding through Thrace they met a troop of armed men who made as if to fall on them. Andrew made the sign of the cross against them, and prayed that they might be made powerless. A bright angel touched their swords and they all fell down, and Andrew and his company passed by while they worshipped him. And the angel departed in a great light."
