Peter and Paul Window: Paul and Barnabas in Lystra

On St. Paul's first missionary journey, the people of Lystra try to offer Paul and Barnabas a sacrifice of an ox (Acts 13-14). Here Paul takes the ox by the horns and leads it away as Barnabas looks on. Detail of Peter and Paul Window in the ambulatory of Bourges Cathedral, dating from c.1215-25.
