    This group of paintings formed the 12 main panels of the altarpiece for the Benedictine church of San Pier Maggiore. It was one of the largest to be commissioned in 14th-century Florence.

    The predella shows scenes from the life of Saint Peter and parts are housed in other collections. It is thought to have been designed by Niccolò di Pietro Gerini or Niccolò di Tommaso, and painted by Jacopo di Cione and completed in 1371.
