Theodulf’s apse mosaic at Germingy-des-Pres depicting the Ark of the Covenant and four cherubim.
As you gaze upon this inner sanctuary [or holy propitiatorium], beholder,
And see the shimmering Ark of God’s covenant,Perceiving these things, and prepared to beset the Thunderer with prayers,
Add, I beg you, Theodulf’s name to your invocations.
