St. Agnes of Montepulciano at Prayer Before the Crucifix

1723
Fresco
In the monastery church in Bad Wörishofen, Germany

The saint prays at an altar with a crucifix. This appears to be the crucifix in Raymond of Capua's Life that an angel fetched for her from a convent that had refused to give it up. Here we see the angel above and the recalcitrant nuns at right.

The cross, one of St. Agnes' attributes, festoons her habit. Another traditional attribute is the lilies at her feet.

In a pun on Agnes' name, the lower left of the image has a lamb (Latin agnus).
