Bay 21 - The Life of St Mary of Egypt

Panel 17 - Mary in the Church of St John the Baptist

Description:
Although omitted from the Golden Legend version, Sophronius' Life of St Mary the Egyptian tells how, after leaving Jerusalem on her way to the Jordan, Mary prays in the Church of St John the Baptist. Here the iconographer has expanded this event to show Mary being blessed by a cleric.
