Saint Martha and the Tarasque
The basis of our print is an image of Saint Martha with the dragon from a medieval illuminated manuscript. Once tucked away in libraries, we now all have the ability to see these beautiful images. We were inspired by the story of Saint Martha to create items with this image and because we want everyone to see the beauty of medieval manuscripts too!

The following excerpt is by author James Duvalier and is from his article about Saint Martha on http://jamesduvalier.com.
According to biblical tradition, Saint Martha was the sister of Saint Mary Magdalene and Saint Lazarus, whom Christ raised from the dead. In one story from the gospel of Luke, Martha receives Jesus into her home and serves him food while he preaches to her sister Mary who sits at his feet. After the crucifixion, according to medieval legend, Martha, Mary and Lazarus travel to the south of France where they preach the Gospel and help spread Jesus’s message of peace and love. She was also recorded as having rebuked and tamed a dragon-like monster called the Tarasque by sprinkling holy water on it and invoking the name of God. I personally love Saint Martha because her example shows us that we can receive greatness by doing simple things as long as they are done with love and faith. – James Duvalier
