St. Raphael the Archangel
Chapel of St. Anne,
Burgos Cathedral, Spain
Raphael is a traveler in the Book of Tobit and is sometimes shown in the
art with a walking staff. Here, his traveling has been interpreted as
pilgrimage and he wears the attributes of a pilgrim going to Santiago
de Compostela: a leather mantle and broad hat festooned with scallops.
