Title: Deliverance of St Peter
Description:
Raphael Sanzio (Italian: Raffaello) (1483 - 1520)
Deliverance of Saint Peter
Fresco, 1514
? cm × 560 cm (?? × 220 in)
Apostolic Palace, Vatican City, Rome, Italy

The Deliverance of Saint Peter is a fresco painting by the Italian High Renaissance artist Raphael and his assistant Giulio Romano. It was painted in 1514 as part of Raphael's commission to decorate with frescoes the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. It is located in the Stanza di Eliodoro, which is named after The Expulsion of Heliodorus the Temple. The painting shows how Saint Peter was liberated Herod's prison by an angel, as described in Acts 12. It is technically an overdoor, probably the most majestic ever painted.

The fresco shows three scenes. In the centre the angel wakes Peter, and on the right guides him past the sleeping guards. On the left side one guard has apparently noticed the light generated by the angel and wakes a comrade, pointing up to the illumined cell. This adds drama, though what follows it is unclear.
