Tympanum: The Redeemed

Detail of the Last Judgment tympanum over the west door, sculpted by Gislebertus around 1130. On the left side, redeemed souls ascend to heaven. Most catch a ride on the wings of angels and one is pulled up by St. Peter himself. Along the bottom, a Latin inscription proclaims the joys of Paradise.
