Panel 01 - The Incredulity of Thomas (Later panel)

 © Stuart Whatling, 2008

This scene of the incredulity of Thomas (where the apostle thrusts his finger into Christ's side-wound) is not part of the original composition but was added some time later in the 13th century, truncating panel 02 and displacing what were presumably two quadrant-shaped signature panels in the lower corners. Reasons for the change are not clear.
