The epitaph genre was particularly popular in post-Reformation Lutheranism (unlike in the Reformed areas of Europe) – as it was in Norway. In addition to a comprehensive introduction to the cultural, social and geographical context of epitaphs, the volume offers a detailed insight into the (self-)representation of the elites who commissioned these epitaphs. It also names the most important artists who were entrusted with the production of the epitaphs in Norway. The main part of the volume is a detailed presentation of the surviving epitaphs in Norway’s four early modern bishoprics. Pictorial motifs, inscriptions and biographical studies are included in the interpretation.
