Saint Margaret of Antioch
First half of the 14th century
Tempera and gold on wood
In the museum of the Basilica of St. Francis
St. Margaret holds what is sometimes called a Bohemian Cross, with three overlapping circles at the ends of the crosspiece and the top. This refers to the dragon miracle. She has long, blond hair and wears a chaplet of flowers and antique dress. Curiously, there is no palm branch to indicate her status as a martyr.
