Kaltofen altar
Loan Bavarian National Museum

The center piece of the altar dedicated to the convent church St. Peter and Aledander in Aschaffenburg by the brothers Kaltofen in 1483 shows the coronation of St. Mary. Heinrich, Johann and Konrad Kaltofen, members of a wealthy family in Aschaffenburg, were all members of the convent. The altar is an example of the wealth and influence of the convent and its members in medieval times.
