St. Peter & Jesus on the Appian Way – Carracci

The title of this art by A. Carracci is Domine Quo Vadis (Lord, where are you going?). The image depicts Saint Peter meeting Jesus along the Appian way. After Peter asks Jesus where He is going, Christ responds: "I'm going to Rome to be Crucified again." Thus Saint Peter turned around and went back to Rome to suffer Martyrdom for the glory of God.
