medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Here's one in the late twelfth-century Navarre Picture Bible (1197; Amiens, Bibliothèque Louis Aragon, ms. 108) at fol. 77r:
http://www.enluminures.culture.fr/Wave/savimage/enlumine/irht3/IRHT_059728-p.jpg
Where, possibly envisioning the book's use by a reader unfamiliar with details of the Book of Job, someone has helpfully added identifying legends next to the two figures.

Two ways in which one could discover this image on one's own:
1) querying a search engine for <"bible en images" job> and then evaluating the individual results.  When I did this in Google just now <https://www.google.com/search?q=%22bible+en+images%22+job&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8> the eighth item from the top on the very first page of results led me right to it.  Why search in French?  Because there's a greater wealth of medieval images with searchable descriptions readily accessible through websites in that language than there seems to be in any other.  But even if one didn't know this, after beginning in another tongue a persistent inquirer might very well try her or his luck in French.

2) searching the French-language database Initiale <http://initiale.irht.cnrs.fr/accueil/index.php> under "Décoration" for <Job> and then evaluating the individual results.

Best,
John Dillon

Can anyone provide links to images of the scene in heaven of God and the Satan conspiring to hatch their plot to test Job?

Thanks
