This painting, once part of the predella, or sequence of images, on the base of a large altarpiece is designed as a narrative, to be read like a cartoon strip. The scene is the interior of a typical fifteenth-century church. The congregation to the left is looking on in horror at the scene unfolding to the right of the composition. A young Carmelite monk has been struck dead at the altar. His cloak has turned black and a devil is snatching his soul from his mouth.
