HARE CATCHES THE HOUND

Here, instead of being chased by the hound, the hare holds him slung across her shoulders as the shepherd is often shown carrying a sheep to safety. The Breviary on this page commemorates St Airy, Bishop of Verdun, for his pastoral qualities in looking after his flock like a good shepherd. Given the adversarial relations of the hound and the hare, however, the hare may here be imagined as carrying him off for supper.

(B.L. Yates Thompson MS 8, Winter Breviary of Renaud de Bar, fol. 255.)
