Detail of the Fulda Portable Altar: St. Blaise and Melchizedech

St. Blaise carries a crozier and wears a chasuble with a Y-shaped orphrey. Melchizedech holds something circular that presumably represents the bread and wine which he sacrificed in Genesis 14:17-19 and which is in Christian typology a type of the eucharistic elements.
