One of the most engaging miniatures in the Suffrages features the Last Supper. Inside a marble Renaissance-style building, the apostles sit around a table with Jesus. Saint John the Evangelist lays his head on the table, a reference to a passage in the Gospels where Jesus' best-loved apostle is described as "leaning on Jesus' bosom." Most suffrages are prayers devoted to a specific saint; the prayer and miniature seen here are unusual for focusing on an event.
