Schelte a Bolswert, after Gerard Seghers
St. Matthew

17th century
Fürstlich Waldeckschen Hofbibliothek, Bad Arolsen, Germany

The Golden Legend says St. Matthew was assassinated with a sword, so in some images a sword is used as his attribute. This engraving is a rare example of the use of an axe instead. I have seen one other in a private collection.
