Saint Francis Resurrecting a Girl

1788 - 1789. Oil on canvas.
On display elsewhere

The hagiography of Saint Francis has a plethora of passages describing his resurrection of dead children and other similar miracles. As many as five appear in Thomas of Celano´s Treatise on the Miracles, all registered in the 13th century. The scene depicted here could be any one of them, or simply a generic representation in which a group of women bring a dead girl to Saint Francis.
