Painting: The Polish king Jan Sobieski III stopped the Ottomans at the gates of Vienna

The Polish king who lead the European armies that stopped the Ottomans at the gates of Vienna, Jan Sobieski III is honored by the Vatican with an entire room that hosts a gigantic oil painting by Polish painter Jean Matejko. Above the luxurious painting, on the gilded frame, sits the Latin dictum “Non nobis, Domine, sed nomini Tuo da gloriam” (Not to us, Our Lord, but to Thee belongs the glory), which is a verse from Psalms.
