Conques Abbey Images

The arrest of Saint Peter. On the main face of the capital, the risen Christ encourages Peter to go back to Rome instead of fleeing. On the left corner is Herod, who points with his left hand to a prison door on the left side of the capital. One of three capitals depicting the life of the saint on the east side of the south transept. Credit: Holly Hayes. All Rights Reserved.
