The Blessed Carlo da Montegranelli, also a nobleman, lived as a hermit near Fiesole. In 1405 he founded the Congregation of the Hermits of St. Jerome, under Pope Innocent VII. The church was entrusted to this congregation at the end of the 15th century, together with the convent of Santa Maria della Vittoria. His kind face, with there rays of light, expresses devotion and intensity. His hands and fingers are painted beautifully, they stand out against his robe, holding a book. From an artistic point of view this is one of the most refined figures.
