The Marriage of Saint Catherine of Siena

On the left are Saint Dominic and Saint Catherine. On the right kneels an unnamed Dominican beatus, probably the Blessed Costanzo da Fabriano (died 1481 or 1482). The standing saint is Augustine.

After death, the Blessed Constanzo's head was transferred to the Benedictine nuns of S. Sebastiano, Fabriano, in 1502 or 1503.
