Certainly not a book on architecture, but the splendid early sixteenth century manuscript published here, illustrating all the reliquaries acquired by Cardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg in the mid 1520s for his newly founded church in Halle, North Germany, provides as good an idea as any of the wealth of costly objects which filled the interiors of major churches all over Northern Europe in the years just before the Reformation.
