medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Herewith some medieval images of Peter of Alexandria. Many depict the vision in which a very youthful Christ whose linen tunic was rent in two is said legendarily to have appeared to Peter when the latter was awaiting execution and to have foretold the Arian schism. In some of these Arius prostrates himself either before Christ or directly below Him.

a) Peter of Alexandria as depicted in the later twelfth-century apse mosaics of the basilica cattedrale di Santa Maria in Monreale:

But the soldiers feared that trouble would befall them because of him. So they looked one at another, and not one of them dared to cut off his head, because of the dread which had fallen upon them. Then they took counsel together and said: «To him that cuts off his head each one of us will give five denarii». Now they were six persons; and one of them had some money; so he took out five and twenty denarii from among the coins and said : «He that will go up to him, and cut off his head, shall receive this money from me and from the four others». So one of the men went forward, and summoned up his courage, and cut off the head of the holy martyr and patriarch Peter; that day being the 29th of Hatur."
