Stories of St. Catherine -- St. Catherine Arguing With the Emperor's Theologians

There are seven pieces depicting images from the story of St. Catherine of Alexandria among the exhibit.

St. Catherine of Alexandria was a virgin who was martyred for her fervent outcry against the persecution of Christians. Many chapels were placed under her patronage, and a statue of St. Catherine was found in nearly all European churches, representing her, according to medieval iconography, with a wheel, her instrument of torture.
