Saint Michael

Saint Michael

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) created this woodcut of St.Michael fighting the dragon - a story which comes from the book of "Revelation" in the Bible.

St. Michael was an important figure in the life of Joan of Arc.  He is one of three saints whom Joan said she saw in visions.

The original woodcut of this image is now maintained at the Staatliche Kunsthalle in Karlsruhe, Germany.
