A bishop saint holds up a book in this rather damaged medallion; we are not sure exactly who he is. This is one of three fragments in the National Gallery’s collection which possibly came from the Palazzo del Podesta in Assisi, and were perhaps once part of the framing of some large composition.

They were probably painted in the first half of the fourteenth century and have recently been attributed to the so-called Master of San Crispino, who decorated the Oratorio di San Crispino at Assisi in the 1330s.
