Saint Carlo and Biagio ai Catinari

In S. Carlo ai Catinari may be seen similar paintings at the angles of the cupola, also by Domenichino, but not equal to the former. This church is dedicated to S. Charles Borromeo, and has its name from a manufacture of wooden dishes, catini, being carried on in the Piazza in front of it. It was built in 1612. There is a painting of the saint behind the altar, by Guido. S. Charles, who was of the noble family of Borromeo at Milan, seems well deserving of the praise bestowed upon him by Eustace. His fame rests upon a far different foundation from that of many of his brethren in the calendar; and if ever a man deserved such reverence from his fellow-men, it would be S. Charles Borromeo.h His family was one of illustrious rank at Milan, and he himself was son of Count Gibert Borromeo, by Margaret de' Medici, sister of Pius IV. He was made cardinal in 1560, and afterwards Archbishop of Milan. He turned his attention particularly to establishing ecclesiastical seminaries, and reforming the religious orders. He was particularly instrumental in bringing the Council of Trent to a conclusion. His death happened in 1584, and he was canonized in 1610. Lives of him have been written by Guissano, Godeau, and others.

The great altar is ornamented with four porphyry columns, and a picture by Peter da Curtuna, and behind it is a fine half figure of St. Carlo in fresco, by Guido.
