Image Title: Charity and Threefold Words

Scripture Reference:

Description: Lady charity holds a partition with three panels. In the left panel, God creates Adam; in the right panel, Moses receives the Ten Commandments; in the center panel Jesus calls out for those with ears to listen to him. The Latin superscription reads, "Charity and three fold principle," and the text below, "This likewise bring forth, which power breathes the fires of love." Is that really God/Adam.
