About this work
Many Christians have long believed that the saints are able to plead with God on their behalf and that particular saints can give protection against specific illnesses. St Antonino (1389-1459) was archbishop of Florence, Italy. He is venerated as the patron saint of fevers. He is shown here carrying a lamp and a bandage, perhaps on his way to tend to the sick. maker: Unknown maker Place made: Italy
