Virtues in the Tower of the Will of God, Scivias, book 3, vision 3: The tower, drawn as a crenellated circle, signifies the foundations of virtue in the Old Testament; in its turrets are the Christian virtues of Heavenly Love, Discipline, Modesty, Mercy, and Victory, "each dressed in silk garments." Longing, carrying a crucifix, and Patience appear in the lower right corner.
