The viewer, the pupil of the image (in the same way that the novice is Honesty’s pupil), may learn from these figures how she should conduct herself – namely, by guarding her senses from harmful intrusion. The middle frame on folio 9r thus represents yet another dynamic graphic representation of the text, and its function is evoked only through extended, embodied meditation performed by its medieval readers.
