Born in 1181, Italian Catholic friar and preacher Saint Francis of Assisi remains one of the most venerated religious figures in history. According to Christian tradition, Saint Francis received the stigmata in a religious ecstasy, making him the first recorded person in Christian history to bear the wounds of Christ's Passion. Italian High Renaissance sculptor, painter and architect Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. A number of Michelangelo's works of painting, sculpture and architecture rank among the most famous in existence, including his scenes from Genesis on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome and design of the Laurentian Library in Florence.
