Guiard des Moulins

Christ en Majesté

Dragon

Grande Prostituée

Esprits impurs

Histoire des deux Témoins

I'm not sure what it means but I looked up 'mythology' at an Italian image database and it returned the bible.

The miniatures and illuminations here are from a 14th century French Guiard des Moulins version of the bible at the Gallica website of La Bibliothèque Nationale de France - Richelieu Manuscrits Français 155. The text is in what I presume is old french - at least, there are definitely french words in there but some of it looks to be latin too. There are 130 thumbnail images in that link.
