Description: This engraving contains four scenes of Jesus’ life and resurrection. Counterclockwise from lower left: the birth of Jesus, Jesus teaching his disciples, Jesus returns in glory, the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The Latin phrase dividing the four images reads, “Ecce agnus dei mundi qui tollit peccata” (‘Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world’); this phrase appears in the invocation “Agnus Dei”.
