The Liberation of St Peter

The Liberation of St Peter
Sebastiano Ricci 1659 – 1734
oil on canvas — 1722

Acts 12:8 - And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

King Herod persecuted the first Christians of Jerusalem. He had James killed and Peter imprisoned. Peter was liberated by an angel during his first night in prison.
