the incredulity of saint thomas, by caravaggio (1601)

According to St John’s Gospel, Thomas missed one of Christ’s appearances to the Apostles after His resurrection. He therefore announced that, unless he could thrust his hand into Christ’s side, he would not believe what he had been told. A week later Christ appeared, asked Thomas to reach out his hands to touch Him and said, ‘Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.’
