Altar of St. Magdalene — The Weekday Panels (Lucas Cranach the Elder)
From Left to Right:
- "St Valentine, patron saint of the suffering ill, cures a man from ‘falling sickness’, which is today known as Epilepsy.”
- "Legend holds that St Marta tamed a dragon by sprinkling holy water on him. The animal crouches submissively by her feet.”
- “St John Chrysostomus is one of the four Great Eastern Doctors of the Church. His sermons converted many people, which earned him the name ‘The Golden Mouthed’”
- The Fourth Panel is lost; the saint depicted is unknown.
