Christ on the Cross Between the Virgin and Moses
Hans Burgkmair German
Not on view
While the woodcut portion of this impression is consistent with published references, the letterpress inscription differs. Typically "EXALTATIO. S. CRUCIS" appears at top center, but here the inscription reads "WITTEMBERG," in large letters, level with Christ's knees, and below, "EXALTACIO.S. CRUCIS," level with Christ's feet. The other impressions were used as the frontispiece for "Ain Sermon von den Haylthumbern," a sermon delivered by Martin Luther in Wittemberg in 1522, with the title page on verso.
