Title
Capital: Second Temptation of Christ
Caption
Romanesque capital in the nave, depicting the second temptation of Christ. The devil tries to convince Christ to throw himself off the high point of the Temple to prove he is the Son of God. Christ is seated on the left, accompanied by an elegant angel. Looking calm and serene, especially compared with the frantic expression on the Devil's face, he refuses.
