St. Getreu, Bamberg: Barrel Vault
In this vault we see the allegoric depiction of the Christ who overcomes death and sin by means of the Cross. A young Jesus with his parents kneeling by him represents the fleshly, God Father and the Holy Ghost above him represent the spritual / heavenly part of trinity. In the lunettes further depictions of ransom through Christus: the Fall of Man is confronted with Fides, the allegory of faith, who catches the shed blood coming from the sacrificed Lamb of God, accompanied by Justitia Dei, the divine justice, with her flaming sword.
In the corners we see (clockwise from upper left) the tips of the Trinitarieraltar, the left and right side altar, and the pulpit.
