Saints Ambrose, Exuperius and Jerome

This panel formed one of two shutters from an altarpiece in Liesborn Abbey, Westphalia, Germany.

The saints have inscriptions identifying them on their haloes. On this, the left shutter, are Saint Ambrose, Saint Exuperius, (whose inscription calls him martyr and knight) and Saint Jerome; on the right shutter are 'Saints Gregory, Maurice and Augustine'.
