Scan of an analog photo taken in June 1997 Zeno was often said to combat the devil and he sometimes was depicted when treating a person obsessed by a demon. A story relates that he exorcised a demon from the body of the daughter of the Emperor Gallienus. The grateful Emperor offered his crown to Zeno which he did not accept. Thus the Emperor instead allowed Zeno or other Christians the freedom of worship within his empire. This story obviously was invented since Zeno and the Emperor Gallienus did not live at the same time. Each of the two wings of San Zeno’s door are covered with 24 bronze plates which depict 23 stories of the New Testament and 18 of the Old Testament. There are also four plates showing San Zeno and one showing St. Michael killing the dragon. Two plates with a lion’s head respectively a human head originally held door rings. The date of the 48 medieval bronze panels is a matter of debate. It is presumed that the oldest panels were created in the 11th century by masters from Hildesheim, Germany. The later panels were made in the 12th century by masters of Verona in the 12th century, eventually by Benedetto Antelami and/or his workshop. While these medieval bronze plates are rather crude - compared with others made in the Renaissance period – they are nevertheless fascinating.
