Figuration of the Confession

Figuration of the Confession

The source of the Faith is flanked by two allegorical female figures, identified by inscription on the plinths, representing Confession and Docility.

To our right, on the south side, is the statue of a woman with the cloak on her left arm, holding the Ten Commandments, the Old Covenant, with her hand. At the same time with his right hand, he points to the first precept, “You shall love God above all things.”

At the base of the tablet is the following inscription: «PRAY AUTEM CONFESSIO FIT AD SALUTEM» which means: «with his mouth confesses to salvation», that is, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, will be saved.


The Bom Jesus do Monte, an unavoidable reference.
