St. Roch – Tiepolo

Saint Rocco or Saint Roch is depicted here with his pilgrim's staff and the dog which brought him bread. St. Roch is often invoked against pestilence and the plague because he devoted his life to healing victims of the plague in Rome. St. Roch is the Patron Saint of Dogs and Invalids, among other things. Artwork by Tiepolo
