religious belief that, after being put to death, Jesus rose again from the
dead. It is the central tenet of Christian theology and part of the Nicene
Creed: "On the third day he rose again in accordance with the
Just before sunrise on the day after the regular weekly
Sabbath three women, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome, come
to anoint Jesus' body, wondering how they would be able to roll the large rock
away from the tomb; but they found the rock already rolled aside and a young
man in white inside; he told them that Jesus had risen, and that they should
tell Peter and the disciples that he will meet them in Galilee, "just as

Fernando Gallego (c.
1440 – 1507) was a Spanish painter, and his art is generally regarded as
Hispano-Flemish in style. Gallego was likely born in Salamanca, Spain, and
worked throughout Castile and Extremadura, most notably in Ciudad Rodrigo,
Plasencia, Toro, and Zamora.
Much of his
biography has been traced through attributions of his work, but few details are
known. The last time he was referred to in a document which implied he was
still alive was in 1507, but the date of his death is unknown.
Some works thought
to be Fernando Gallego’s are likely instead Francisco Gallego’s, such as San
Acacius and the 10,000 Martyrs and the Getty Museum’s Pietà. Francisco is known
to have worked in Fernando’s workshop, but their relationship is unknown. More on Fernando Gallego
