Summary[edit]

Description
Britain Loves Wikipedia at the Victoria and Albert Museum
Romanesque Tabernacle - detail
English: Tabernacle detail (circa 1180). Cologne, Lower Rhine (Germany). Gilded bronze and copper on a wooden core, with champlev� enamel and walrus ivory. Probably from the church of St Pantaleon.


This tour de force of Romanesque goldsmiths' work and carving combined widely varied foliage patterns with figures that are classically inspired. Its function has been much debated. The iconography, or subject matter, centres on Christ's redemption of mankind, fulfilling Old Testament prophecy. This indicates that the tabernacle probably housed the consecrated bread for the Mass.
