Plaque with Saint Paul and His Disciples

British (?)

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 304

The inscription on this plaque refers to the epistles Paul addressed to the various early Christian communities (Romans, Corinthians, Philippians) among whom he traveled. Other related plaques, now dispersed, probably decorated a large casket or liturgical furnishing. The refined drawing has close parallels in English manuscripts.
