P6235294ac Orvieto Duomo Second Facade Pillar The Tree of Jesse
TO ENLARGE FOR DETAILS!!! It represents the Tree of Jesse in its center and scenes from the Old Testament with messianic prophesies of Redemption; The Tree of Jesse is branching from Jesse at the base then rising in an Ancthus vine to his son David and then upward to Jesus, the son of Joseph and Mary (both thought to be of the House of David as medieval lore felt that the members had to marry within the House of David); Not only do the Davidian kings appear here, but also "pagan" prophets such as Virgil and the Sibyl, attesting to the appeal of Jesus as Lord of all; Italy Umbria external views of Orvieto Cathedral facade Pier 2.
