Abstract: Francesco Zahra's two canvases, the Ordination and the Death of St Philip of Agira, are examples of Baroque painting at its most glorious. This is one of Zahra's greatest achievements in which he blends hagiography, Christian allegory and portraiture to create a glorious tribute to the patron saint of Żebbuġ
