Triegel meets Cranach - The Altar of Mary in Naumburg Cathedral

© Copyright by Info, FALKO MATTE

Description:

Tour of the unique altar in the west choir of Naumburg Cathedral

Since 4 July 2022, Naumburg Cathedral has been home to a very special work of art that bridges centuries and unites confessions: the spectacular "Triegel meets Cranach" altar project came to a successful conclusion with the rededication of the Marian altar in the west choir of Naumburg Cathedral.
 
In 1519, Lucas Cranach the Elder created an altarpiece for the altar of the Virgin Mary in Naumburg's west choir.

Since 4 July 2022, Naumburg Cathedral has been home to a very special work of art that bridges centuries and unites confessions: the spectacular "Triegel meets Cranach" altar project came to a successful conclusion with the rededication of the Marian altar in the west choir of Naumburg Cathedral.
 
Lucas Cranach the Elder created a three-winged altar retable for the altar of Mary in Naumburg's west choir in 1519. The central part of the retable, with a depiction of the Mother of God Mary with Child, was destroyed in 1541 in the course of the controversy during the Reformation. In this way, the west choir lost its patroness. The large-format side wings with portraits of the two founding bishops and various saints have survived the centuries. After more than 500 years, the two side wings have now been supplemented by a new central section and a predella created by the Leipzig artist Michael Triegel. This has enabled the west choir to regain its liturgical centre.

The unique altar will be on display in the west choir of Naumburg Cathedral until 4 December 2022.
