Saint Martin

St. Martin was a Roman soldier before he became a Christian and Bishop of Tours (397 A.D.) The painting by El Greco shown above depicts the incident when, having nothing else to give a beggar, he cut his cloak in half and draped it around him. Later Martin had a vision of Christ wearing the part of the cloak which he had given away.
