Focusing on material remains from Italy, Germany, and Scandinavia from the early eighth to the 13th centuries, six essays investigate why altars were decorated with images and precious materials, what role the Eucharist played in the program, whether pictures were intended simply to remind viewers of the story of Christ and the saints or had other functions, and what precisely the narratives related. Decoration adjacent to altars is also considered.
