A radiant cloud rings the mount as Jesus is transfigured. In this copper engraving from Anvers’s Histoire du Nouveau Testament, published in 1700, the prominent cloud suggests the moment during the Transfiguration when “a cloud came and overshadowed them … and a voice came from the cloud saying, ‘This is my son, the Chosen. Listen to him’ ” (Luke 9:34–35), Once again, Moses—with beams of light springing from his brow—and Elijah flank Jesus at left and right respectively, while the three disciples pray in the foreground.
