   Affresco staccato Proveniente da S. Nicola in Carcere

Prophet Haggai (Aggeus), 23 5/8" diameter, 1" thick

From the Church of St. Nicola.

He was born in Chaldea during the Babylonian captivity (B.C. 587-538), was a young man when he came to Jerusalem with returning exiles, and was buried in the Holy City among the priests, according to traditional tales.

He also has been represented as an angel in human form, as one of the men who were with Daniel when he saw the vision related in the Biblical story of Daniel, as a member of the so-called Great Synagogue, as surviving until the entry of Alexander the Great into Jerusalem (B.C. 331), and even until the time of Jesus Christ.
