Two Scenes of Christ and the Apostles
The story depicted on this ivory focuses on a garment that Jesus seems to be giving to an apostle and may refer to his charge to his apostles to continue his ministry. The ivory, which may have decorated a liturgical manuscript, can be associated with the court of Charles the Bald (r. 840–77), grandson of Charlemagne.
