World Chronicle by Rudolf von Ems, scene

Rudolf von Ems (ca. 1200 – 1254), also called in English Rudolf of Ems, was a mediaeval Austrian epic poet.
The Chronicle of the World (Weltchronik) is Rudolf's last work, dedicated to King Conrad IV. It narrates, as an addition to the Bible, the Historia scholastica of Petrus Comestor and the Pantheon of Godfrey of Viterbo, the history of the world from the creation up to the death of King Solomon, with the added motive of legitimizing the rule of the Hohenstaufen dynasty. As early as the 13th century this work was combined in many manuscripts with the Christherre-Chronik.
