The Martyrdom of St. Sebastian

Catalogue note author
Paulina Kluz


The painting of St. Sebastian was probably created in the first half of the 18th century. In the records of the visit from 1748, there is a mention of the side altar of the saint, in which it was probably originally located. In the second half of the 20th century it was removed from the altar and hung on the wall of the nave. Saint Sebastian served as commander in Diocletian's guard. He once opposed the Emperor's persecution of Christians, for which he was tied to a tree and pierced with arrows. This moment of the martyrdom of the saint is illustrated in the painting discussed.
