St. Bernardino and the demons

This is one of the many beautiful paintings that make the Church of San Bernardino an art jewel. The church was built during the XV century and it has a beautiful cloister completely paved with marble tombstones and plaques. 
Walking along the cloisters you can admire the paintings that, I guess, tell the story of San Bernardino from Siena. 
This one caught my attention: I think it celebrates the Saint that chases the demons out of town.
