St. Peter raises the senator Nicostratus from the dead as St. Paul prays behind him. This is part of the contest between Peter and Simon Magus in Rome, as told in the apocryphal Acts of Peter. In the accompanying left pane, Simon had tried to raise him from the dead but could only move his head. Detail of Peter and Paul Window in the ambulatory of Bourges Cathedral, dating from c.1215-25.
