Title
Capital: Liberation of St. Peter
Caption
Romanesque capital in the nave depicting the liberation of St. Peter from prison. On the main part of the capital (not shown here), he sits in a rather ornate prison with a rope around his neck and an angel appears to show the way out. On the right side of the capital (shown), a guard stands outside the cell with a key, showing that the door was locked the whole time. According to the biblical story, the guard was so amazed by the miracle that he converted.
