Saint Bridget of Sweden Receiving the Rule of Her Order

Agostino d'Antonio di Duccio Italian, Florence

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 500

The relief was made for the predella of the altar of San Lorenzo in San Domenico, Perugia, commissioned in 1459 and already dismantled in 1482. The young Christ is shown presenting the order of her rule in the form of a scroll to Saint Bridget of Sweden (ca. 1303-1373; canonized 1391). Saint Bridget recorded this mystic vision in her "Revelationes."
