Cefalù cathedral, mosaics, apse, Pantocrator

In the semidome of the apse at Cefalù, the Pantocrator – Christ as the “ruler of all” – blesses and holds an open book inscribed in Greek and Latin with a verse from John’s Gospel (8:12), “I am the light of the world: whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” A monumental inscription in Latin frames the apse, “Factus homo factor, hominis factique redemptor. Iudico corporeus corpora corda Deus,” “Made man, maker of man, and redeemer of what I made, I judge in body the bodies and the hearts as God.” D'Emilio photo archive no. s19780717_1922u (13.4.20/JD)
