I admit, it is not St. Catherine of Siena’s
feast day. I don’t care. I found her tomb, and it is gorgeous. Thank you, Medol, for putting these in sharealike space!
Thanks to Kertraon! Nice light!
Woah. Her casket is built into an altar. Thats amazing!
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say: “Sarcophagus of Saint Catherine of Siena, given to Isaia da Pisa (worked in years 1447-1464), beneath the High Altar of the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, Rome.”
And… Here’s the church.
And… the gorgeous interior.
Thanks to Tango for putting this image into CC space! Lots of space!
Here’s a different look, in a different light. Wow, you barely noticed the marble in the previous. Below, there is a “side chapel”.
WP is being annoying again. But St Catherine of Siena was quite the influential thinker, and is a Doctor of the Church.
