Spanish term or phrase:San Antonio reference
In a Spanish article reviewing El Dia de la Bestia, it talks about a primitive painting of "San Antonio a punto de ser tentado por una hermosa dama suntuosamente vestida a la que por debajo del vuelo de la falda denuncia una indiscreta garra de dragón"
Does anyone know anything about this. Is this chap called Saint Anthony in English? Is this a biblical story?
Explanation: The reviewer may be making the point that in a complete reverse twist to the Devil's temptations of St. Anthony in the desert (all of which he was able to resist), the priest in this film is trying to tempt the devil himself out of hiding by committing every crime he can to get his attention.

Explanation: The saint in question is San Antonio Abad, as in St Anthiny, Abbot, the subject of many paintings including one by Sasseta (Sienese, at MMA in NYC) and a disputed one by Chardin in my living room!
