Lent Devotional: Duccio’s, Temptation of Christ

This Lent Devotional features Duccio’s Temptation of Christ. When you follow the link (highlighted text), you will find both an analysis of the work, and a contemplation on the spiritual implications of the painting.

Originally this painting was part of the Maesta, a complicated altarpiece painted for the Cathedral in sienna. You can read more about the story of the complete altarpiece in this article.
