In this volume, the emphasis lies neither on the genesis of the main types of altar decoration during the early Middle Ages, nor on the late Middle Ages with the fixed polyptych and the winged altarpiece as the most conspicuous types of the altar decoration. Both periods have received extensive treatment in the past. Instead, the focus is shifted to the phase in between (1150-1400), a period that has hitherto received only limited scholarly attention. Indeed, this is probably the first time that studies on altars and their decorations in such diverse locations as Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, England, the Low Countries, central France, Catalonia, Majorca, northern and central Italy, and Cyprus have been gathered in a single volume.
