Battle of Lepanto - Veronese

     In this image of the Battle of Lepanto, by artist P. Veronese, Catholic soldiers kneel in the clouds in front of Our Lady, begging for her intercession, as angels look on. Below, the Turkish and Christian ships are engaged in fierce naval combat. This rendition of the Battle shows that it was the prayers of the Christians to Our Lady which won victory for the Holy League.
