Gate of San Bartolomeo - Montefalco (PG)
The ancient Porta di San Bartolomeo is almost contiguous to the apse of the homonymous church. Also known as Frederick II, it is one of the oldest in the castle; it has a slightly ogival sixth; it was enlarged in 1244, as recalled by an epigraph walled up above the arch, in which the cross and the double-headed eagle are carved, the two symbols mentioned by Dante that summarize the two supreme medieval powers, the Church and the Papacy. The inscription says: I(n) N(omin)e D(omini). A(men). H(oc) OP(us) E(st) AC(tum) A(nno) D(omini) M.CC.XLIIII./IUS (s)U D(omin)i LEOPARDI I POT(estatis) CO(cco)R(oni) / PO(r) TA/... I MAG(ister) PE(trus) / ME FE(cit).
