Spoleto Cathedral - Eroli Chapel
Communicating with the Chapel of the Assumption by means of a door, the Eroli Chapel, commissioned by Bishop Costantino Eroli in 1495, has a rectangular shape and is extended by an apse. The back wall of this chapel, also called in the past of the Sacred Heart, is completely frescoed by works by Pinturicchio. Unfortunately, over the centuries, the frescoes have been damaged by humidity which led to the loss of a significant part of the tempera finishes, especially those that adorned the barrel vault, of which only a small part remains visible.
The main scene depicts the Virgin seated with the Child in the middle of a large village at the gates of a city and with St. John the Baptist and St. Stephen on either side. The basin depicts the Eternal Father, dressed in a green tunic and a red cloak, sitting on the clouds and flanked by cherubs. In the lower part of the altar, however, we find Christ in the Sepulcher depicted. On the left wall, right in front of the door that connects it with the other chapel, we can admire a niche, the use of which is unknown, adorned with a blessing Christ, while two windows open above it.
The chapel until 1845 had been used as a baptistery.
