Funeral of Maria Clementina from Filppo d'Azon, Parentalia, 1736

Maria Clementina, the wife of James VIII, was an intensely religious woman, considered literally saintly in the years after her death. A series of magnificent festivals, one of which is commemorated here, marked her lying in state, the commemoration of anniversaries of her death and of the eventual translation of her body to St. Peter's.
