St. Thomas of Villanova in Art

 

Most portraits of St. Thomas depict him giving alms to the poor.  He was called "God's Almoner" that is, the person charged with distributing alms in a noble or rich household.  This image is one of a series that are said to represent the “true image” of St. Thomas of Villanova.
