St. Benedict is on the far left, with his
usual crozier and book. Resting on the book is a wine jar that refers
to the episode of the
flagons in the Golden Legend's life of the saint.
On the far right is
Benedict's sister, St. Scholastica
(dove and book).
Flanking the Virgin
are St. John the Baptist (lamb) and St. John the Evangelist (poison cup).
