Juan de Herrera
St. Ambrose

16th century
Sacristy, Monastery of Sobrado dos Monxes, Sobrado, Spain

Statues of the four Doctors of the Church are placed at the four corners of the sacristy. Ambrose is pictured in his role as bishop and theologian with mitre, book, and cope. His left hand holds a flail, one of his attributes, rather than the customary crozier.
