Stephen had been killed by an angry mob. Here he is put in a grave by a group of pious men. In the background other men grieve.

Some see similarity in the composition of this panel with Raphael's Deposition. It is known that Juan de Juanes was inspired by the Italian master.

Part of a series of six on the martyrdom of St. Stephen that Juan de Juanes made for the church of San Esteban (=Stephen) in Valencia.
