Capital: Weighing of Souls

The Weighing of Souls. The Archangel Michael holds the scales, while a tiny human supplicant kneels on the left and the Devil tries to pull the balance down on his side. Detail of Romanesque capital in the choir, mid-12th century. St-Pierre, Chauvigny, Poitou-Charentes, France.
