    "“Fourteen Angels” of the lost children’s prayer from the 19th- century German composer Engelbert Humperdinck’s fairy opera Hansel and Gretel: www.fourteenangels.org/the-prayer.html. The Miracle of Saint Vitus, on this month’s cover, is an account of chorea-like illness. As the clinical features were heterogeneous, Saint Vitus’ dance became an umbrella term for an assortment of kinetic disorders. In this scene, the unknown painter captures for posterity the frightful plight of a person with neurologic illness. Helpless and misun- derstood, he awaits a miracle that will loosen his muscles, unlock his mouth, and steady his limbs. At the same time, the painting sheds light on how a saint and his name might have become intricately connected with the activities in Echternach and elsewhere.
