Scenes from the Old Testament: Creation of the World

Upper Church, San Francesco, Assisi

This scene begins the biblical stories in the nave. From an iconographic point of view they are derived directly from the Early Christian frescoes that could once be seen inside the Vatican basilica of old St. Peter's. The influence of these Roman prototypes can also be recognised in almost all the medieval mural paintings of biblical subjects in the central regions of Italy.

This fresco is located in the clerestory of the north wall in the fourth bay of the nave.
