Saint Eligius in his Goldsmith's Workshop

Ca. 1370. Gilded, Tempera on panel Room 056B

This is a set of two scenes (P02842, P02841) referring to one of the first known stories of Saint Eloy, a French saint from the late sixth and early seventh century and a great goldsmith who served kings Clotaire II and Dagobert and became Bishop of Rouen. In the second panel, Saint Eloy in his Goldsmith´s workshop (P02841), the saint chisels the piece along with other officials and apprentices from his workshop. With the gold and precious stones he received for making this piece, Eloy managed to make two chairs. That was the beginning of his legend of saintliness —an example of honesty, as he didn´t keep the leftover material for himself.
