Title
Capital: Samson and the Lion
Caption
Romanesque capital depicting Samson subduing the lion. In the 12th century this was a popular symbol for the power of the Christian over evil. This capital was probably not carved by Gislebertus, but the inferior sculptor who also made the capital of Christ washing the disciples' feet.
