Title:Abraham at Mamre-Santa Maria Maggiore
Notes:

Seen as a prefigurement of the Eucharist as well as the Trinity, the visitation at Mamre exhibits Abraham serving the three angels. The remaining activity of Genesis 18 is pictured in the top portion of the mosaic, when Abraham has a long conversation with God regarding the future of Sodom.
