Wise and righteous judgement
Upon entering the Tribunal, the
condemned person immediately saw the sheriff and magistrates – the prosecutor
and judges – sitting on the long bench. And behind them, three depictions of
good judgement. In the middle was the Judgement of King Solomon, who managed to
find the truth in court through the use of a clever trick. The marble stories
were there to inspire the sheriff and magistrates to be wise and just.
