The bishop on the right is identified as St. Gotthart of
Hildesheim by the photographer. The flowers in his right hand
are not seen elsewhere as an attribute of this saint.
St. Benedict, on the left with his crozier, holds the broken
glass vessel that had held wine poisoned by his monks. The
glass sits on a copy of the Benedictine Rule, to which
Gotthart points with his left hand. Gotthart was notable for
reviving observance of the Rule.
