Geertgen tot Sint Jans’ picture of the De Heilige Maagschap -or the Family (extended) of Our Lady – shows another intesting liturgical use of a medieval church. The picture dates from around 1480. It shows taht Mass has been celebrated at the parochial altar which is situated outside of the Rood Screen. You can see a rather plump altarboy putting out the candles. The earlier posting of the Cathedral at Auch shows an extant example of a Rood Csreen completely closing off the chancel from the nave.
