"This page of The Large Passion dates from as early as the Apocalypse series and perhaps from c. 1496 because of the close resemblance to St. Jerome Penitent in the Wilderness in contrast to Schongauer's version in which Christ is shown in a prayerful attitude, Dürer opted for an expression of fear" (Bartsch X, 248).
