Parable of the good Samaritan
In the scene we fi nd on the right the representation of a town in the distance, while in the foreground there is Christ bending and stretching his arms to help a naked and wounded man, laying on the ground. Behind the man there is an angel who is giving a golden cup to Jesus. In the following scene the wounded man is sitting on a donkey, Jesus is walking in front of the animal, while putting some coins on the palms of the hands of an innkeeper.
Because of the bad conditions of the parchment, half fi gure of the innkeeper, has disappeared and what remains is a reddish shade of his head. According to Guglielmo Cavallo, the angel, not mentioned by Luke, must have been inserted in the scene on the base of an allegorical patriotic comment with allegorical popular interpretation. According to it the Samaritan becomes Christ, the wounded man represents the fallen Mankind and the hotel represents the Church.
