Cathedral, Monreale

An extensive cycle on the life of Christ unfolds in three registers across the walls of the crossing and the transepts, beginning with the Annunciation and ending with the miracle of the Pentecost.

The present picture shows a detail of the west wall in the south transept. It represents Christ's Entry into Jerusalem, Last Supper; Christ before Pilate.
