Did You Know?

According to Christian tradition, the stigmata correspond to the appearance of Christ’s wounds at similar places on the faithful following his crucifixion.


In this depiction representing his closeness to Christ, Saint Francis receives the stigmata through strikes of light from a vision of the risen Lord hovering as an angel in front of the basilica at Assisi. This bowl likely recalls a panel painting produced by the Italian master painter Giotto around 1300.
