Julius Shnorr von Carolsfeld, St. Peter's Vision at Joppa, published 1877

"I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. There was something like a large sheet coming down from heaven, being lowered by its four corners; and it came close to me. As I looked at it closely I saw four-footed animals, beasts of prey, reptiles, and birds of the air [NRSV, Acts 11:5-6]."
