This painting is called Ambrose and Theodosius, by Antony Van Dyck from 1619-1620. It depicts Ambrose, bishop of Milan in the 4th century, refusing to admit Emperor Theodosius to a service. Ambrose was demanding that the Emperor repent for ordering the Massacre of Thessalonica, where 7,000 people were killed. Eight months passed. Ambrose finally admitted Theodosius only when the Emperor made a law that death sentences would require a thirty day lag before execution so as to allow reconsideration. This event was significant in the history of church-state relations.  Photo credit:  Unknown, public domain, Wikimedia Commons.
