The paper discusses two paintings on parchment preserved in the British Museum collection, one representing the cycle of Moses, the second St. Mary, St. George and a pair of suppliants. Both are found to be amulets, although they lack protective prayers, which is an unusual feature. Their effectiveness is based upon a carefully chosen set of apotropaic images.
