Saint Eloy before King Clotaire

Ca. 1370. Gilded, Tempera on panel, 35 x 39 cm.

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 Saint Eloy before King Clotaire (P02842), the Merovingian king, Clotaire, who knows the saint´s fame and skills as a metal worker, commissions Eloy to make a saddle of gold and precious stones.
