A religious interpretation of “the Calling of St Matthew” 

Listen to how a priest interprets this painting and then compare it to the link where art historians interpret this work.  What is different, and what is the same?  What does this tell you about the work?  What do both interpretations have in common, how do they differ?

One thought on “A religious interpretation of “the Calling of St Matthew” 

  1. Caravaggio was a rascal and a difficult. Hard to believe he would be so straightforward suddenly in this work. I like the alternate idea that the kid with his head down is actually Matthew.
