St. Bernard, Doctor of the Church

There is an interesting archive of images of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, many of which illustrate events in his life or themes prominent in his writing and preaching. There are, of course, many images of the Virgin Mary, consistent with his importance in the development of spirituality and doctrine about Mary. Similarly, many images depict his battling the devil and embracing the crucified Christ. Dante gave St. Bernard a role in escorting him to heaven in the Divine Comedy, probably due to Bernard's deep devotion to Mary.
