“Saint Florian, Patron Saint of Firefighters”, by Marc Stolfi

“Saint Florian, Patron Saint of Firefighters” – graphite and charcoal on illustration board, 18.75″ x 25” (click on image to expand)

This Saint is always depicted as a first-century, (Jesus era) Roman Centurion. This “Hollywood” version of the Saint is historically wrong. Florian Von Lorch lived during the 4th century  in what is now Austria. I have researched the proper armor and equipment of a 4th century Roman soldier and I rendered him accordingly. As far as I know it is the only accurate depiction of the man.
