Edit Plate Depicting Christs Passion 1510 Italian Catholic Stock Photo Raindropio


The painted scenes on this plate depicting the Passion of Christ include the betrayal of Jesus by his disciple Judas (right); the arrest and condemnation by the Jews (left); the bearing of the cross (top); the Crucifixion (middle); and the resurrection (bottom). At least one of the scenes (the condemnation or the Scourging at the Pillar) is based on a Florentine woodcut from the devotional writings of Girolamo Savonarola (1452–1498).

During the Renaissance, scenes from the Christian Bible were prominently featured on maiolica, covering the surface in a style called istoriato (decorated with stories).
