Nicolas Poussin
La Translation Miraculeuse de Sainte Rita de Cascia

Circa 1633
Oil on panel
Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, England

As far as I know, the legends of the rising of the saint's body never had her flying up above the countryside. It may be that Poussin is visualizing what Cavallucci called her transito, the lifting of her soul to Heaven (99-102).
