St. Stephen's Vision of the Son of God

Church of San Moisè, Venice, Italy

Actually, Stephen's vision of "the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God" (Acts 7:56) occurs before the mob drags him out of the city and stones him to death. The artist has collapsed the two events so that the "Son of man" can be shown handing down a palm branch in recognition of the martyr's victory.
