Side Altars as a liturgical Window on Late Medieval Society. Altar Patterns of Five Urban Parish Churches in the Northern Netherlands (c. 1550) Compared.

During the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries many lay groups and individuals in Western Europe founded side altars and chapels in the parish churches of their towns. For this article, five town parish churches in the Northern Netherlands were selected to carry out a survey of altar patterns in their interiors on the eve of Iconoclasm and Protestant Reformation, c. 1550: the St. Stephen in Nijmegen, the Buurkerk in Utrecht, the St. Bavo in Haarlem, the Old Church in Amsterdam and the St. John in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
