Legend of Saint Francis 10: Exorcism of Demons at Arezzo

Legend of Saint Francis 10: Exorcism of the Demons at Arezzo. One of 28 frescoes in a series by Giotto in the Upper Church (1297-99). During the civil war in Arezzo, St. Francis saw demons over the city and called upon Brother Sylvester to drive them out. The demons flee, and the citizens can return to their business in peace - they can already be seen at the city gates.
