More Caravaggio

I included a work of Caravaggio's in one of my earlier posts, and now I find myself being drawn more and more to his work. Here are a few for those not familiar with him:

This is probably an easy challenge, but can any readers identify the events being portrayed in these works of art?

Caravaggio is one of my favorite artists! His contrast of light and dark is beautiful. His painting of St. Jerome is probably my favorite.

thanks for putting some of his work up : )

First picture is St. Peter's crucifixion.
Second picture is St. Thomas placing his hands in Christ's wounds.
Third is a depiction of the divine inspiration of writer of scripture, but I am unsure of who it is particularly...either St. Paul or St. John?

Peter Youngblood,

The third painting is The Inspiration of St. Matthew.
