Decorating the Lord's Table by Erik Thuno

Book Description

As the centre of Christian worship within churches, the altar has always remained a key subject to pictorial decorations. This book is concerned with the Early and High Middle Ages which saw a profusion of sumptuous altar decorations all over Medieval Europe focusing on the rich Scandinavian material of 'golden altars'. Dealing with the investigation of the interrelationships between image and altar in the light of recent years' methodological developments the chapters are also treating themes like the human body, materiality, pictorial narrative, and liturgy. In this context, it focuses on the attempt to activate the image before the ritual, its audience and the visual and spatial context.
