Raphael

The Deliverance of Saint Peter shows, in three episodes, how Saint Peter was liberated from prison by an angel, as described in Acts 12. It symbolizes the power of Christ to escape human restraints.

Raphael

Raphael Sanzio da urbino was born in Spring 1483. He died April 6, 1520 at the age of 37.

The Stanza della segnatura was the first to be decorated by Raphael's frescoes.He was comissioned by Pope Julius the second to paint what is called The Disputation of the Holy Sacrament.

Raphael was an Italian painter and architect of the Renaissance.

Toward the end of 1509, Raphael began work on the wall opposite the Disputa. This second painting, entitled The School of Athens, represents the degrees of knowledge or the truth acquired through reason.

It was meant to reside over the philosophical section of Pope Julius II's library. It is perhaps Raphael's most famous fresco.
