Panel 12 - The Betrayal / Arrest of Christ
An unusually busy visualisation in stained glass terms; closer in style to manuscript illuminations, or later panel paintings of the scene. In the centre of the composition Christ receives the treacherous kiss of Judas. Lower left, Peter chops off the ear of Malchus. Upper left a group of soldiers come jostling in carrying spears and a lantern, while upper right another siezes Christ's wrists.
