The Jesuits Have Saint Lawrence

"Certainly it's a stylistically impeccable, beautiful painting," the newspaper said in an article that will appear in its Sunday edition. "One can't but be reminded of works like the Conversion of St. Paul, the Martyrdom of St. Matthew and Judith and Holofernes."
The "Martyrdom of St. Lawrence" belonging to the Jesuit order has not yet been authenticated as a work of (pictured) Caravaggio
but appears to have all the hallmarks of his paintings including dramatic lighting effects, the Osservatore Romano said.
