Bay 23 - The Parable of Dives and Lazarus

Panel 16 - The rich man's soul cries out to Abraham for solace

Devils torment the rich man's soul in a boiling cauldron (with rather nice rivets!) According to Luke 16:24, when the rich man's soul was in hell, "...he cried, and said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, to cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame". Here the man points to his tongue while the titulus above him gives the first two words of his plea.


(1 - upper); "PATER ABRAHAM"
