Saints & Apostles on Glass

A closer look at four of the figures of saints on the stained glass in the Chapel of the Magi.

St John, the Evangelist, is identified as the figure at the lower left here. On his knees is a parchment with the first words of his Gospel, “In the Beginning”.

The top of the wooden Triptych by Jacopo di Paolo is just visible in the foreground.

San Petronio, Bologna; March 2017
