Paul before Felix, Plate II, 1752. Paul, with his hands chained, stands before the governor Felix, defending himself. A Roman soldier to the left of Paul leans against his spear looking very bored. Two men at the feet of Paul take down what he is saying. A concerned Felix takes the hand of a worried looking woman. On the right of Felix a man leans his head on his hand looking as if he has heard enough. The caption says that Felix trembled as Paul talked of righteousness, temperance and judgment.
