Panel B2 - Nicholas arrives at the church early one morning
Following the death of the Bishop of Myra, the remaining clerics are unsure who to elect as his replacement. One of the eldest has a dream in which Christ tells him to elect the first man who comes to the church the following morning, whose name will be Nicholas. Here we see the elderly cleric meeting Nicholas at the entrance to the church, asking his name and bidding him enter.
