Raphael Tapestries
Raphael made a number of designs on paper for tapestries in the Sistine Chapel. Seven of the designs still exist, and ten tapestries. They shows episodes from the lives of saints Peter and Paul.
The three missing designs were about St. Paul:

  • The Stoning of St Stephen
  • The Conversion of St Paul
  • Saint Paul in Prison
