9.2.2019, 15 hrs: Dialogue tour: Purgatory on the altar – benefactors and angels at the service of pour souls

The exhibit shows a predella panel (16th century) from the collection of the Diözesanmuseum, which originally was part of the Epiphany altarpiece in parish church St Martin in Aulendorf. The speakers of this tour will explain the presentation of the purgatory over which the angels are floating in expectancy of the purified soul. They will comment on the different steps of creation of an altar screen as well as the meaning of this segmented artwork in liturgical context.
