Saint Peter Martyr, a Dominican preacher and an inquisitor for the pope, displays the tools of his martyrdom: A dagger penetrates his chest, and a broad-bladed knife cleaves his skull. In this emblematic image, whose calm belies the violence of his death, Peter wears the habit of the Dominican order.
