The last supper and the washing of the fee
Christ and the twelve disciples are placed around a semicircular table, at the center of which there is a golden cup.
The sixth apostle on the left dips the bread in it, while Christ raises his hand as if he wanted to speak. The illumination depicts the action described in the Mark’s gospel, lines 26-23: the person who dips his hand in the plate with me, will betray me. The episode is commented by a verse in Greek written on top, verily I tell you that one of you will betray me (Mark 26, 21). In the scene on the right, the washing of the feet is proposed, in the moment in which Christ, bending, washes Peter’s feet; The Greek verse says: He (Peter) tells him: you will never wash my feet (John 13, 8).
