Christ's entry into Jerusalem
- Christ's entry into Jerusalem marked the beginning of the Passion and is celebrated yearly by Christians on Palm Sunday. Christ rode through the city gates on a donkey while his followers cut tree branches and laid them on the ground in front of him as they praised him. Examples of the scene in art include Giotto's version in the Arena Chapel in Padua (1305), Duccio's in the Maestà Altarpiece (1308-1311; Siena, Museo dell' Opera del Duomo), Pietro Lorenzetti's (c. 1320-1330) in the Lower Church of San Francesco in Assisi, the Limbourg brothers' in Les Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry (fol. No. 173v; 1416; Chantilly, Musée Condé), and Albrecht Dürer's woodcut in the London British Museum (1511).See also Jean, Duc de Berry.
