The St. Luke Madonna
This icon depicting the Virgin with the Child Jesus held at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Paul, in the old Maltese capital of Mdina, owes its name to the long-held belief that it had been created by Saint Luke in the first century. However, art historians now agree that it probably dates to a later moment of Christian history, probably the Middle Age period.
