In my post St Ambrose in Milan last year I looked at what St Ambrose may have looked like, and what he looks like now. This year I thought I would share this early fourteenth century view of him, simply because it is a beautiful painting.
From the cycle by Simone Martini of 1313-18 in St Martin Chapel in the Lower Church at Assisi. A detail from the Dream of St Ambrose as depicted by Simone Martini
Of course it could be a comment on so many synodical and such like meetings.
