Panel 23 - Martin heals a paralysed girl in Treves
Chapter 16 of Sulpicius tells how the father of a certain girl in the city of Treves, despairing of his daughter ever recovering from a paralysis, pleaded with Martin, who was visiting the city, for help. The saint visited the girl and cured her through his prayers. His success here is contrasted with the ineffectiveness of the doctor in panel 22.
