Beautiful 15th century sculpture now on display at the Getty Museum – Medievalists.net

Running across this article about one of Getty’s newest acquisitions brings to mind my own year-by-year progression of discovery of the Martyrion (memorial shrine) and Tomb of St. Philip in Hierapolis, now Pumukkale, Turkey. More about that later.

The Getty Museum is now showing its latest acquisition – a rare medieval alabaster sculpture of Saint Philip by the Master of the Rimini Altarpiece.
