Punishment of Lust

Detail of the Last Judgment Tympanum (1107-25) over the west door. A pair of lovers, bound side by side, await their punishment as a demon confers with Satan about the matter. Their crime may be even more serious than the usually lust - the man's hairstyle suggests he was a monk.
