"St Elizabeth of Hungary"

Print Based on Vintage Holy Card

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary is still famous today for her almsgiving to the poor. She was the daughter of the King of Hungary, and she married the ruler of Thuringia, a German state. Often she would smuggle food and clothing from the castle to give to those in need, so much so that members of the court resented her. One day, while carrying out loaves of bread in the folds of her robe, she was stopped by the courtesans. They demanded to know what she carried. It is said she opened the robe and it was full of roses. This miracle proved to her husband that her works were of God.

Born in 1207, she learned her Christian zeal from followers of St. Francis, who was her contemporary. Married at 14, widowed at 20, after her husband’s death she joined a convent and continued to serve the poor until her death four years later. Her Feast Day is November 17. She is the Patron Saint of bakers, the homeless, widows, and young brides. (source:

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

– Acid-free paper
– Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
– Cardboard backer
– Above story of the art
– Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
