Exhortation to the Praise of God

Although the manuscript for this collage of biblical and liturgical praises comes from a sixteenth century friar, Marianus of Florence, he attributes it to a wooden panel that formed the antependium of an altar in the hermitage chapel, Saint Mary of the Angels, of Cesi di Terni in the Spoleto Valley.a
