South Door Capital

Capital depicting a beheading on the south door in the outer wall, which was originally a main entrance into the priory. The tympanum dates from the mid-12th century and is crowded with lively sculptures. Subjects include the Adoration of the Magi, Adam and Eve, and a coiled serpent tormenting the damned in Hell.
