Exhumation of St. Hubert – Weyden

In the 9th century, St. Hubert's body was exhumed in St Peter's in Liège showing that his body had not decayed at all since death. This proved his sainthood to the bishops, clergy and onlookers. This is a companion artwork to the Dream of Pope Sergius which were both part of the same altarpiece. Artwork by R. Van der Weyden.
