Regina Confessorum
Queen of Confessors

The queenly figure of Mary, adorned with scepter and crown, is sitting on a throne of clouds surrounded by sumptuous drapery held by two little angels.  

At her feet are kneeling several bishops and a king, looking up in admiration or down with awe and reverence.  Two figures attract special attention.  One of them seems to be wearing the habit of the Dominicans, probably Saint Dominic; he offers a crown or wreath of roses.  The other figure, in simple and monk-like attire, could be Saint Francis.

The representation is inspired by Revelation 4:10, "They fell down before the one on the throne and threw down their crowns."
