large-writ scripture

At this precise instant, he thought he had never felt quite so miserable in his entire life. His mind and body together made up a large-writ scripture of pain. His head ached terribly, the sick throb of a hangover. The attendant symptoms were there, too: his mouth tasted like a manure rake had taken a swing through it, his ears rung, his heart had an extra-heavy, thudding beat, like a tom-tom.

What does large-writ mean?
Woud it be:
a) something ( a scripture) that is written in large letter (figuratively)?
b) writ large (clear and obvious)?
c) something else?

Thank you
