15a Despenser Retable, Norwich Cathedral, 1381-1400, Flagellation,
Carrying Cross, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension.
Altars, the place where the priest said mass, were decorated with sculpted
or carved panels, called retables. The priest turned toward the images,
his back to the people. The faithful, during mass or in private devotion,
would look at the imagery.
