The Conversion of Saul is a fresco painted by the Italian Renaissance master Michelangelo Buonarroti (c. 1542–1545). It is housed in the Cappella Paolina, Vatican Palace, in the Vatican City. The style is more mannerist than his earlier Sistine Chapel frescoes, and was not as well received by contemporaries. The next fresco he completed was The Crucifixion of St. Peter.
