The output of Bernardo Strozzi's Genoese activity can be divided into two parts, the paintings and frescoes for the aristocracy and the altarpieces and other religious compositions for the Capuchin Order.
St Diego of Alcalá (St Didacus of Alcalá) was a lay brother of the Order of Friars Minor who died in 1463 at Alcalá de Henares, Spain. He was canonized by Pope Sixtus V in 1588.
