Saints' Paintings by Peter Paul Rubens



Saint Thomas

This is one of a series of twelve panels painted by Peter Paul Rubens in 1611 that make up an apostolate that originally included a Savior of the World. All are now displayed in the Prado Museum, Madrid.

All the paintings show an attribute to identify the apostle. In the St. Thomas panel he is shown with a spear. The tradition among Christians in India is that Thomas was speared to death near Madras.
