Luca Giordano
The Death of St. Scholastica

1674
Church of Santa Giustina, Padua

While one of her sisters reads from the Office of the Dead and the others pray, the saint's soul is received by the angels in the form of a dove. This was the vision that St. Benedict saw while in his monastery just at the time of Scholastica's death.
