North doors panels: 6. Temptation of Christ

Gilded bronze
Baptistery, Florence

The theme for Ghiberti's north doors of the Baptistery is the life of Christ in 20 scenes with the 8 lower panels containing the Evangelists and Fathers of the Church. As these doors were kept shut, except on feast days, the scenes read from the bottom accross both wings.

View the arrangement of the panels on the north doors of the Baptistery.

The picture shows the Temptation of Christ, one of the 20 scenes from the life of Christ.
