Raphael’s Transfiguration

The Transfiguration by Raphael
The Transfiguration by Raphael

The Transfiguration is one of the miracles of Jesus. The theme of the painting is taken from an episode in The New Testament. In it, Jesus is transfigured (hey, that’s the name of the painting!) and shines like a ray of light on top of a mountain. Moses and Elijah (prophets) appear beside him and Jesus is called “son” by a voice above. The painting now sits in The Vatican City. Hopefully, we get to see it!
