Gonville and Caius Chapel Cambridge

This 14th century chapel's gallery was extended in 1870 by Alfred Waterhouse in a Byzantine style that is unique to the structure.

Five mosaics by Salviati that are located behind the altar in the new east apse depict incidents from the Bible involving teaching.

The prophet Samuel being tutored by Eli.

The finding of the scroll of the Law in the Temple by Josiah.

The boy Jesus disputing with the scribes in the Temple. 

Jesus teaching Martha about eternal life near the tomb of Lazarus.

Christ in glory surrounded by his disciples can be found on the chapel ceiling.
