Title:Pax, or Peace, detail from the Allegory of Good and Bad Government
Notes: First Sunday in Advent, Year A: This depiction of Peace as the ruler of a well-governed city, where justice and fairness are the fruits of a beneficent ruler, reflect the words of Psalm 122:
"For there the thrones for judgment were set up, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers"... For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good."
