This is the left-hand panel of a triptych painted for the church of St Columba, Cologne.

Front
The front of the left panel shows two scenes from the Passion of Christ that took place before the Crucifixion, 'Christ before Pilate’ and ‘Christ in front of the people’. These two related stories illustrate the Gospels’ telling of how the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate sentenced Christ to be crucified, despite the fact that he believed he was innocent.

Reverse
The reverse of this panel shows the miracle of the Mass of Saint Gregory, in which the figure of the crucified Christ appeared to Pope Gregory the Great on the altar as he was celebrating mass.
