Saints A - ZAlberich (OCist) LifeThe Virgin Mary gives him a white cowl and turns the monks' black cowls white
Further details
Described as the Virgin Mary giving the scapular to St Stephen Harding. However, the ample vestment handed over is a cowl, not a scapular, and hence, as kindly suggested by Fr Professor Alkuin Schachenmayr OCist, the image shows rather the Virgin mary giving the white cowl to Bl. Alberich.
