The Church of S. Sebastian.

Joining to the little Door which is not far from the great one, you see the Picture of S. Nicholas, a Bishop, and an Angel, the work of Titian.

At the farthest Altar on the same side you see a Picture with Christ upon the Cross, by Paulo Veronese.

On the other side of the Church there is a Picture of St. John Baptizing of Christ, by Paulo.

Then follows another Picture of Christ when he appeared to the two Disciples going into Emaus, by Andrea Schiavone.

The Walls of the Church are all painted in Fresco with Pillars, Statues, and other ornaments of Architecture, by Paulo Veronese.

All the great Chapell is by the same Paulo, the Cuppola and the Tribunal are painted in Fresco.

The great Altar-piece represents the B. Virgin with her Son, and Angels in the Sky; and below are the Saints Sebastian, S. Katherine, S. John Baptist, S. Francis, and S. Peter.

The great Square on the right hand of the great Altar represents S. Mark and S. Marcellin going with S. Sebastian (who is in Armour) and comforting him to his Martydom.

Page  81 In another Square on the left hand you see the above-named Saint bound to a Machine of wood, coming to be Martyred, and the false Priests per∣swading him to worship their Idols, with many standers by: all the aforesaid works are the fairest that ever were done by the most noble hand of Paulo Veronese.

Afterwards are the Doors of the Organ, on the outside is painted the Circumcision of our Lord, and within is Christ curing one sick of the Palsie, works so fair that they stand in no need of commendation.

Upon the top of the Organ you may observe a little Square with the Nativity of Christ, one as well as the other are most graceful pieces of great Paulo.

Let us cast our eyes upon the Roof, which is all painted by the aforesaid Paulo.

The first Square demonstrates Queen Esther going into the presence of King Ahasuerus, ac∣companied with many Waiting-maids.

In the middle Square is the King Ahasuerus frowning on Queen Esther.

In the third you see Mordecai conducted to Haman, by the order of the King.

As you goe into the Sacristie on the left hand over the Door of a little Chapell you may see a little Square with S. Girolamo in the Hermitage.

In the Sacristie, the middle partition of the Coronation of the B. Virgin, and the four other partitions of the four Evangelists, one as well as the other are of Paulo.

There is also another Square of the Chastising of the Serpents, by Tintoret.

Page  82 Let us goe into the Quire, and right against the Door we shall see a Square, which represents S. Sebastian before the god Cletiano, confessing himself to be a Christian.

In front of this Square there is painted over the Door, the same Saint beaten with Clubs, a work in Fresco.

Above these Squares there are the four Evan∣gelists, two on either side in Fresco, all these are of Paulo Veronese.

In the Refectory there is the great Feast of Christ in the House of the Pharisee's, 'tis enough, that it is of Paulo Veronese.
