Image Title: Three Theological Virtues

Description: Mary is crowned Queen of Heaven by all three members of the Trinity as angels look on, while below, three women show a kneeling man the door to heaven. One holds a key and has a tongue of fire on her head, another holds an anchor, and the last holds a chalice and wafer. The Latin superscription reads, "Three theological virtues," and the text below, "This work seems to me to be divided into several parts. First, faith; next hope; the third part is Love.".
