The Cathedral of St. Elizabeth in Kosice

The Cathedral of St. Elizabeth in Kosice, cover page.

One of the most imposing architectural monuments consecrated to St. Elizabeth in Central Europe is without a doubt the Cathedral in Kosice and the late-Gothic altar erected in the Cathedral's apse in her honour.

The High Altar dates from the years 1474-77 and has the classic structure of a windged altar. In its frames there are four sets of 12 picture compositions. The book offers high quality pictures of the altar's pictures and sculpted figures.

The book was published in the English, German, and Slovak versions.
