1769

The repousse silver cover portrays the saint seated in episcopical robes on a late Renalssance throne flanked by foliate scroll-work. The figures of Christ and the Virgin above banks of clouds present the saint with the symbols of his prelacy, a book of Gospels (evangelium) and a bishop’s “omophorion”, of which he had been unjustly deprived. A dedicatory inscription among the edge of his footstool includes the date of the work, 1769. Hand-painted and silver guilded.
