Saint Bernard of Siena
- Created between 1585 and 1610
- Located right now in the Casa y Museo del Greco, which is in Toledo, Spain
- He used renaissance techniques with the rebirth without the church and individuals are important
- I find this piece interesting because it has many subtle ways showing the rebirth without the church. I also fine the frame interesting because it's a cathedral. The Saint is holding a staff with the writing IHS and a cross in it with rays of sun coming off it. I think that all those things are interesting and thats why I choose this piece
- This describes secularism because it includes a cathedral, a saint, priest's hats, and a bible all showing that they are breaking away from religion.
