Three Hebrews

A Miniature showing the Three Youths in the Furnace thrown into a fiery furnace. The miniature generally includes the angel, Gabriel, who protects them from the flames. The miniature may also feature Nǝḇūḵaḏneṣṣar and his guards. From the seventeenth-century the episode may be divided into several scenes. The main typologies attested in the Ethiopian tradition are: Type 1 The Angel stands behind the youths Type 2 The Angel stands to the side of the youths
