Through his self-imposed life of poverty, Saint Francis was among the most revered saints in medieval Europe. This panel represents the moment when Francis – identifying with Christ – received the wounds (stigmata) that Jesus suffered during crucifixion. The panel was originally the left wing of a triptych, with The Crucifixion at centre and the Death of Saint Francis on the right.
