Scenes from the Life of St James (scenes 1-6)

Cappella Ovetari, Chiesa degli Eremitani, Padua

This photograph was taken before the chapel was destroyed on 11 March 1944. Today only fragments of the lower wall area remain. The left-hand wall showed scenes from the story of the Apostle James. They are from the upper left to the lower right: the Calling of Sts James and John (scene 1); the Preaching of St James (scene 2); St James Baptizing Hermogenes (scene 3); the Trial of St James (scene 4); St James Led to Execution (scene 5); the Martyrdom of St James (scene 6).
