Romanesque tympanum of Sainte Foy at Conques

In this section of the present is depicted the progress of the Church, seen here as a procession of figures towards Christ, led by the Virgin Mary, Saint Peter and the founder of Conques, the hermit Dadon. The Carolingian dynasty represented by Charlemagne and other members follows, surrounded by monks and even guided by the hand by the abbot of Conques. The smallest figures visualize the oldest times of the Church.
