Our brand new series of talks on art, artists and faith which we are naming the St Catherine Faith and Art Series after St Catherine of Bologna - the patron saint of artists. Each of these talks will look at a work of art or a theme found in art and discuss how it relates to faith and belief.  

More on Saint Catherine of Bologna (8 September 1413 – 9 March 1463), an Italian nun as well as both an artist and saint. The patron saint of artists and against temptations, Catherine de' Vigri was venerated for nearly three centuries in her native Bologna before being formally canonized, in 1712. Her feast day is 9 March.
