Brother Joseph

Saint Anthony of Padus uses the History of the Greeks from the Apocryphal Gospel to recount the story of the origin of the Cross of Jesus. In his Opus for the Feast of The Discovery of the Cross St. Anthony tells the story of the tree from which the Cross came. This sermon became so popular that two hundred years later, the story was still being passed on; and subsequently inspired the well-known artist Piero della Francesca in the year 1435 to paint the story in breathtaking scenes.
