ST CLEMENT; TRINITY

Pope St. Clement Adoring the Trinity, Gianbattista Tiepolo, 1738, Alte Pinakothek, Munich, Germany

Counter-Reformation Catholic artists like Tiepolo also stressed the centrality of redemption in their depictions of the Blessed Trinity. In contrast to Protestant artists, however, they stressed the link between the One God and Christ’s True Presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Here Tiepolo depicts St. Clement of Rome, the third pope, kneeling before a Eucharistic altar over which the Trinity appears. An angel holds Clement’s papal triple cross, and he has set down the keys of the kingdom next to the incense burner on the altar steps.
