Abstract

The Veronese tomb of Sts Simon and Jude has attracted more scholarly attention to the early Christian sarcophagus incorporated within a late Gothic setting than to the setting itself. This paper seeks to redress that imbalance and examine the work done in the 1330's, when the tomb was constructed. It also examines the relationships between the tomb and the cult of the two Apostles in Verona, as well as its place in the careers of the two artists to whom the gothic elements can be attributed, the sculptor Antonio da Mestre and the painter Martino da Verona, whose partnership was a dominant force in Verona and its surroundings in the later trecento and the early quattrocento.
