Women’s Healing in the Rabbula Gospels

I recently learned that the 6th century illuminated Syriac manuscript known as the “Rabbula Gospels” is available online here. Below are two sample images from it of Gospel stories of women’s healing: the woman healed after 12 years of bleeding (Luke 8:43-48) and the woman healed on the Sabbath after crippling positional deformity of 18 years (Luke 13:10-17).  Learn more about the manuscript at hmmlorientalia and at the Catholic University of America here.
