Life of Saint Nicholas Shown in Images

The cycle of Saint Nicholas shown in frescos, icons and stained glass from churches in Amsterdam, Serbia, Italy, France and the United States. These images told the stories before the days of printing presses and the spread of literacy. There is also a whimsical adaptation from The Golden Legend.
