medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Perhaps because we just saw it for Monica, John has left off the Arca di 
Sant'Agostino in Pavia, with the recumbent effigy of Augustine, scenes

The church that houses the Arca also holds Augustine's relics (as well 
as Boethius')

I can also offer a c.1300 polyptych with an Augustine panel:
