Hva er et frontale?

Et frontale er et panelmaleri plassert foran alteret (tidligere omtalt som antemensale – ante mensa – foran bordet). De norske frontalene har en rektangulær eller tilnærmet kvadratisk form.

Se for øvrig Morgan, Nigel (2004) Norwegian Altar frontals in a European context: form and function, Painted Altar frontals of Norway, 1250-1350, London, pp. 3-12.
