The church of St. Bartholomew the Apostle in Campobasso stands on the higher point of the city. The main feature of its decoration can be observed on the central portal, with Christ inside an almond supported by two angels and the symbols of the four Evangelists, biblical kings and prophets. The most important comparison can be done with the northern entrance of the church of San Leonardo in Lama Volara in Siponto. Although both are dated to the mid-thirteenth century, the workforces came from different contexts; those involved in Siponto were closely linked to the Benedictines who commissioned the building of San Clemente a Casauria in the late twelfth century, while the workers of St. Bartholomew came from the local area. In both cases there is the figurative exhibition of the theme of pilgrim’s travel, conceived as a metaphor of man’s wanderings until the redempion, exposed on the portal.
