The painting is divided into four narrative scenes, each of which depicts episodes from the lives of holy figures key to late medieval Christian devotion: the apotheosis or raising into heaven of Saint Augustine; the coronation of the Virgin; Saint Catherine of Alexandria disputing with the philosophers; Saint Francis receiving the stigmata, and Saint John the Baptist in the wilderness. The combination of these iconographic episodes is unusual, and probably reflects the patron’s specific requests.
