Crucifixion of St Peter

Fresco
Upper Church, San Francesco, Assisi

In the north transept of the Upper Church, the decoration of the upper zone was supplemented by a cycle dedicated to Peter and Paul - but especially Peter - by Cimabue and his workshop. The sequence consists of five scenes: Peter Heals the Lame, Peter Heals the Sick and the Possessed, the Fall of Simon Magus, the Crucifixion of Peter, and the Beheading of Paul.
