The four scenes represented on this ivory diptych are Christ’s Flagellation and Crucifixion on the left panel and Christ’s Resurrection and Appearance to Mary Magdalene (Noli me tangere, or "Do not touch me"). Ivory diptychs like this one illustrating pivotal moments in the story of Christ’s Passion and resurrection served as powerful tools in the devotional practices of elite members of society during the later Middle Ages.
