Description
San Miguel (St. Michael the Archangel), 19th c. Mexico. Retablo, oil on tin. Size: 12.5" x 16.25" (framed). San Miguel is one of the three archangels mentioned in Scripture (the other two being Raphael and Gabriel), was a popular figure in Baroque iconography. In Revelation 12:7-9, Michael is the captain general of the heavenly hosts of angels who, in the war which broke out in heaven, did battle against and conquered Satan and his legions. Hence, Michael is venerated as the protector of the Church Militant. In this capacity, he represented the triumph of the Church over heresy and, by extension, the militancy of Spanish Catholicism. The text on the retablo (Quis ut Deus) refers to the meaning of the name Michael (like unto God). In art, Michael is portrayed, as here, as a handsome young soldier vanquishing Satan. Michael is commemorated with the other two archangels on September 29. Provenance: Saint Joseph's University.
