Virgin and Child with Saints Clement and Justin. Clement was the third Bishop of Rome, ordained by Peter to administer the church in Rome while Peter devoted himself to prayer and preaching. Clement is the only Bishop of Rome to have a Russian Orthodox church named in his honor, showing how wide his veneration has always been. (Master of the Castello Nativity, 1449-50)
