|Caption:||Detail of the Cedar Doors, which despite their name are carved of pine. These splendid doors from the mid-12th-century show strong Arab influence, which would have been derived both from contact with Muslim Spain and the Crusades. The left door is carved with reliefs of the Nativity of Christ; the right door depicts the Passion of Christ. The reliefs are surrounded by mock Kufic script and Latin inscriptions in a similar style.|
