Pope Visits Dying Woman

Title

Pope Visits Dying Woman

Description

In the center of the ornate room is a golden four-poster bed. A dark-haired woman, perhaps with a crown or halo, lies on it. Kneeling at its side is the Pope, who is dressed opulently in a vestment with a long red train, white train, golden robe and golden hat. Behind him stand a priest or bishop in a reddish-purple vestment and a man in black and white vestments who holds his staff. To the far left, a gate keeps a crowd of onlookers outside the room. Behind the priest and to the right side of the bed are ghostly-gray angels. Of the two on the right, one plays a harp while the larger holds a list. Light shines down on the top of the bed.
