Sub-Project Wolter-von dem Knesebeck

The King as guest – House and Herrschaft in secular wall painting

The sub-project is devoted to the subject of Herrschaft in medieval secular wall painting. It examines festive scenes that are related to a travelling monarch or could plausibly be construed as such, as well as the representations of the lord as guest (independent of any actual journey). The focus is thus, not on a supposed 'court propaganda', but rather on the actual lords and users of the rooms depicted, who can generally be identified with the commissioners of the paintings.
