dc.descriptionView of single panel, Christ driving the money changers from the Temple; In 1401 a competition was announced for a second set of bronze doors. The two finalists were Lorenzo Ghiberti and Filippo Brunelleschi; both entries, illustrating the Sacrifice of Isaac, are extant (Florence, Bargello). Ghiberti won the competition and was commissioned in 1403 to design doors with New Testament scenes. Installed in 1424 on the east side (later moved to the north side), these followed the scheme of the earlier doors, having twenty narratives and eight seated figures within quatrefoils. The enframing lattice is considerably richer than that of Pisano's doors, and the compositions are more closely coordinated with the quatrefoils.
