Darstellungen neutestamentlicher Mahlszenen auf den Ciboriumsäulen von San Marco in Venedig

Jutta Dresken-Weiland
Among the most unusual and at the same time the most unknown monuments of late antique and early Byzantine art are the four Ciborium columns of San Marco. With 369 figures and 95 scenes in their nine registers with nine arcades, they are the richest monument in figures and scenes of the early Christian and early Byzantine period. They depict scenes from the Apocrypha and the New Testament that begin with the prehistory of the Nativity of Mary and end with the Ascension of Christ and the enthroned Godfather. Although their dating in the 6th century has been proven conclusively by Thomas Weigel in 1997, most scenes have not been studied in detail. Among these scenes are three little known or unpublished scenes of New Testament meals that deserve in their peculiarities to be presented to a scientific audience: the iconography of the wine miracle at Cana, the sinner at the meal of the Pharisee Simon, which is the first known representation of this scene, and the Last Supper.
