Abstract

Painting depicting the Martyrdom of St. Sebastian was painted probably in the fourth quarter of the 19th century or in the first quarter of the 20th century. It was re-mounted to the altar finial of the side altar. St. Sebastian was probably the emperor's guard leader, a Roman martyr. During the persecution of Christians in Diocletian times, he died tied to a tree and pierced with arrows by his torturers.
