Abstract

"The Hanseatic City of Rostock plays a significant role within the late medieval artistic production in Northern Germany which is mainly represented by three High-Altarpieces from the 15th century, spread around the monastic and parish churches in the city centre. They all follow one formal standard of size, format and structure which indicates that they have been fabricated in local workshops. However, each of the three altarpieces has a very genuine iconography and has been created with the conceptual approach to attach people serving within a specific community to one particular church and, thus, to create a genuine collective identity.
