Section 4 (panels 9 and 10)
Inscriptions:
Madeline, Saint Agnes charmed maid
With silver taper light and pious care
Full on this casement shone the wintry moon
And threw warm gules on Madeline’s fair breast

Narrative:
Angela conceals herself and Porphyro while Madeline prepares for bed. Porphyro gazes at Madeline while she sleeps with the moon shining on her breast.
