Chartres Cathedral, Incarnation portal, capital frieze, right side, inner face

On the right side of the Incarnation portal, the innermost capital shows Jesus washing the feet of the apostles at the Last Supper. The remaining scenes appear to represent episodes that followed Jesus’ resurrection. The middle capital shows Jesus meeting the disciples on the road to Emmaus and having supper with them. The outermost capital presents Jesus showing his wounds to St. Thomas who doubted his appearance after death. The last figures may represent the mission of the apostles. In the archivolt above, the bearded figure leaning towards a desk on his lap is thought to be Pythagoras, shown as a representative of Music in the cycle of the Seven Liberal Arts D'Emilio photo archive no. s20000413u (13.05.16/JD)
