Raising of Cardinal Stephen's Nephew

The scene depicted here shows St. Dominic raising Napoleon from
the dead.  Pope Honorius asked St. Dominic to consolidate the
various convents in and around Rome.  Among others the Pope
 appointed Cardinal Stephen of Fossa-Nuova to assist St. Dominic.  

Only the Abbess of St. Mary's across the Tiber River was willing
 to cooperate with the Pope's request.  During St. Dominic's effort to achieve the pope's wishes, Napoleon, nephew of Cardinal Stephen
was crushed to death by a horse.  Following a Mass for the dead man
 and assisted by the Abbess, St. Dominic laid his hands upon
Napoleon and raised him from the dead.
