Saints Christina and Ottilia – Cranach


St. Christina of Bolsena and St. Ottilia of Alsace stand together, in this artwork by L. Cranach. The young virgin Christina stands on the millstone, which floated when she was tied to it. The Benedictine nun Ottilia holds her eyes on a plate, to show that her blindness was cured.
