A Bedtime Prayer
Illuminated manuscript print
10 x 12 & 5/8 inches
Artist: Nancy Wilds
Ms. Wilds writes, "In medieval illumination the interior represents earth and the exterior represents heaven. In this manuscript the kneeling figure in white contrasts subtly with the twilight tones outside, while peasants above and a noble family below say grace at their evening meal."
This birthday prayer may be found on page 598 of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
