This painting is part of the group: The Littleton Pilaster Saints
On loan from the Rector and Churchwardens of St Mary Magdalene Church, Littleton, © St Mary Magdalene Church, Littleton

The identification of this Saint is not certain. The palm that he holds indicates that he was martyred but this is a later addition which may have been added to transform him into a representation of Saint Bruno Boniface.

The figure may originally have been intended to represent Beato Silvestro who was buried with Beata Paola under the high altar of Santa Maria degli Angeli. He is dressed in the long white habit of the Camaldolese order
