Saints Christina and Ottilia – Cranach


St. Christina of Bolsena and St. Ottilia of Alsace stand together. Saint Christina of Bolsena stands on a millstone to which she was tied and thrown into a lake, but she miraculously survived because the stone floated. Her companion, Saint Ottilia of Alsace holds her eyes, to show her blindness was cured; she was a Benedictine nun. This is by the artist L. Cranach
