"Arise up quickly..."
The Deliverance of St. Peter
Raphael. Fresco, 1514
A section of the painting by Raphael and his pupil Romano. Set upon a doorway. The scenes describe Peter's rescue by the angles, as described in Acts 12 of the bible.
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. - Acts 12:7
