The Serving Girl Finds Tobias Well

15th century
Stained Glass
Musée National de Moyen Age, Paris

This is an illustration of Tobit 8:15. Sara's mother "sent one of her maidservants, who went into the chamber, and found them safe and sound, sleeping both together." This is perhaps the most dramatic moment in the story, because on seven previous wedding nights a demon had come and killed Sara's spouse.
