About this artwork

Another group of Christians emerges from the bushes in the left background of the panel. We find the same hierarchical order once again: popes cardinals bishops priests and monks. Although they hold palms of victory they are not dressed in red. These are not martyrs therefore but confessors; saints who did not die a martyr's death.
