Oratorio del Santissimo Crocifisso

< previous > < index > < next >
The paintings above the entablatures are all anonymous. There are two panels which look like curtained windows, and at the level of these are the four Evangelists. Above the windows are two small panels showing The Sacrifice of Abraham and The Bronze Serpent (which are regarded as Old Testament prophecies of the Crucifixion). Over the arch are two angels bearing a motto: In Cruce gloriari oportet, in qua est salus ("It is necessary to glory in the Cross, in which is salvation").
