Benedict of Montecassino: Scene, visited by Sabinus -- Among Totila and Sabinus, wearing hat and draped headgear, both look toward nimbed Benedict of Montecassino, tonsured, bearded, wearing monk’s habit, raising right hand and emerging from portal, accompanied by four monks, wearing hooded habits (two with only heads visible). Scene in monastery garden with stream and city and tree in background. Miniature within frame for Chapter 15 of Book II of Dialogues; Benedict of Montecassino delivers prophecy on the Sack of Rome to Totila, King of the Goths, and to Sabinus, Bishop of Canosa (Camisina).
