Choir Capital: Weighing of Souls

Early-12th-century Romanesque capital in the choir, depicting the Weighing of Souls. St. Michael the Archangel does the weighing, while the Devil interferes. Here a soul hangs in the balance, while two people hold hands with St. Michael. Perhaps they are intercessors for the soul of the deceased?
