CIRCE

"A phial, an Agnus Dei," (U15.289)

* In Christian theology, Agnus Dei (Latin = Lamb of God) refers to Jesus Christ in his role of sacrificial offering to atone for the sins of man (after John 1:29).
* In Christian art, an Agnus Dei is a representation of Jesus as a lamb bearing a cross or a banner.
* Falling from Ellen Bloom's pocket, it refers to a tablet of wax stamped with a representation of Jesus as the Agnus Dei, blessed by the pope.
