The series probably depicted the story of the life of Saint John the Baptist, who, according to Christian tradition, was the precursor of Christ. The subject, taken from the first chapter of the gospel book of Luke, presents the vision of the aged Zacharias as he officiates at the altar of incense and learns from the Angel Gabriel that his wife Elizabeth, although “well stricken in years,” is to bear a son, John, who will “make ready a people” for the coming of the Lord. The crowds, who “waited…and marveled,” are at the right, dressed in the style of Florence during the 1300s. The pointed turban of the middle figure indicates that he is Jewish. The kneeling figure at the left is probably the donor of the painting. This painting was removed from the wall in the 1800s and has since been remounted on canvas. It has been connected to two others from the same church, The Crucifixion in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and The Birth of John the Baptist in the Galleria Nazionale, Rome.

The elegant quality of the Virgin’s dress and her courtly stance suggest her elevated status and nobility, while the Christ Child’s pose and the manner in which his mother supports him evokes an informal, tender mood. The Virgin’s crown, which alludes to her role as Queen of Heaven, rests on a veil that symbolizes her humility. Although only a small fragment now survives, the Virgin initially held a flower in her right hand, probably a rose or lily, while the Christ Child holds a bird. In Christian tradition, these symbols refer to the story of Christ’s birth and sacrificial death.
