Another sword-bearing figure in Christian depictions is the archangel Michael, about whom we read in the Apocalypse that he defeated the satanic dragon. But Christian art shows Michael
also holding a scale. There, the blade of his sword is transformed into the "tongue" of the scale, pointing out the difference between good and evil.
St. Michael kämpft mit dem Teufel
Allerhand: Michael bedeutet „Wer ist wie Gott?“
