A Carthusian monk kneels in adoration before the enthroned Virgin and Child. He is presented to them by John the Baptist, while the Christ Child hands him a rosary. Standing between them is Saint Jerome, who, like John, lived as a hermit in the wilderness. Both saints thus emphasize the Carthusians’ reclusive way of life.
