On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 535

This Spanish Dominican (ca. 1350–1419), often depicted with wings, was known as "the Angel of Judgment." His charismatic preaching warned of the imminence of death and Judgment Day and urged repentance and penance. Ferrer converted many thousands of nonbelievers both within and outside Spain.
