St. Maria in Lyskirchen, Ceiling
As by a wonder the ceiling of St. Maria in Lyskirchen was spared by the ravages of war. So we are still able to admire these frescoes from the 13th century: each part confronts scenes from the Old Testament with such from the New Testament, a meeting of type (OT) and antitype (NT).
What is missing in this picture cycle is the depiction of the crucifixion, we may assume it in another section of the ceiling (the square of the centre nave); the presumed depiction of the Tree of Jesse would have been located in the square of the choir nave.
