Episcopal Throne (c.1040)

Romanesque episcopal throne dating from the period when Leone, a native of Monte Sant'Angelo, was Archbishop of Siponto-Gargano (1023-50). The panel seen here, showing St. Michael spearing the dragon. Scholars believe this panel is even older than the throne. Shrine of St. Michael the Archangel, Monte Sant'Angelo, Puglia, Italy.
