The frescoes depicts an allegory of faith - a woman who is holding a book with seven seals, lamb and a shield with a dove, surrounded by figures of angels and the four allegorical embodiments of the virtues: prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance. The library is about 100,000 manuscripts and printed volumes.
