Ettal Abbey, Bavaria, Germany -- Archangel Michael rises atop the pulpit, stomping the hoofed devil and hurling some gilded protoplasm, perhaps a lightning bolt. We saw Luke's ox at the bottom of the pulpit. Here the edges are marked by the symbols of the evangelists whose gospels are literally amplified by this canopy which serves as a rococo megaphone. At left we have John's eagle and Matthew's angel.
