Rosie will have the final word on this article, but here are a few questions to mull over. Whose story does Seidel think is being told on the capitals of St. Etienne at Toulouse? Who was the audience for these capitals and how does that impact the style of narrative adopted? What is the relationship between St. John the Baptist and Christ and how does that color the reading of the Feast of Herod and its aftermath? Finally, how is Salome characterized on the two sets of capitals and do you agree with Seidel’s interpretation?
