Apostles from Àger: Thaddeus and James
Of the group of mural works known as the Pedret Circle, the paintings from Sant Pere in Àger bear a special likeness to the apse figures of the former Cathedral of Saint-Lizier, in Couserans (France), the only work from this group preserved outside the Catalan territory. Stylistically, the so-called Pedret Ciricle paintings are of an extraordinary quality, in this case with the two magnificent Apostles dressed in classical attire. The church of Sant Pere in Àger was the seat of a community of Augustinian canons which possessed vast territorial domains and was one of the main centres of political and religious power in the south of the Urgell County.
