Panel 2 of Cantiga 57 of the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X

The Robbed Pilgrims to Montserrat

A woman and her companions were travelling on pilgrimage to Montserrat.
They stopped to rest at a spring.
They were robbed by a knight, named Reimundo, and his men.
The lady and her party asked the Virgin for vengeance and went to Montserrat to report the robbery.
The friars and the prior rode off and found the robbers paralyzed and struck blind. One of them had a chicken leg stuck in his mouth.
The friars took them to Montserrat, placed them in front of the altar, and prayed for them. The robbers were healed and vowed never to sin, nor to rob Christians again.
