Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
In Leuven, Belgium, one finds the Church of Saint Peter and in the left aisle of the church, among several art treasures, a wooden sculpture of the Madonna can be seen. This Madonna is called the 'Sedes Sapientiae' (Seat of wisdom) and is the symbol of the University of Leuven. It was sculpted in 1442 by De Bruyne.
