The New Adam raises the old Adam
"It is I, says Christ, I who have destroyed death, and triumphed over the enemy and trodden hell under foot, and chained the strong men, and brought Man to the heights of heaven: It is I! says Christ."
- Melito of Sardis (2nd century AD), Homily on the Pasch.
Detail of a window in King's College chapel, Cambridge. This is probably my favourite window in the entire chapel.
