Image Title: Peter Denies Jesus

Description: On the left: Saint Carlo Barromeo stands with hands apart and back to the altar in a gesture of surprise, as the angel and altar boys kneel toward the altar. Above on the left Abiathar comes before to David. Above on the right, Jesus sees as Peter denies him for the third time, and a rooster crows nearby. On the right: Saint Bartholomew and Saint Matthew stand on plinths on either side of the text. Bartholomew holds a knife and a book, and Matthew holds an axe and a book, symbols of their martyrdoms.
