Imagines mortis

No information in English language available yet.

Eine vielfältige und einzigartige Sammlung makabrer Totentanzdarstellungen vereint sich in den ‚Imagines mortis’. Die ersten Totentänze traten im 14. Jh. in Form von Wandgemälden und Monumentalwerken auf. Mit Erfindung des Buchdruckes wurden die durch Verse ergänzten Darstellungen europaweit verbreitet. Dabei variiert das typische Motiv der mit lebenden Menschen aller Stände tanzenden Skelette zwischen einem wilden Tanz und einem geschrittenen Reigen.

Die ‚Imagines mortis’ umfassen insgesamt ca. 180 Werke der Totentanzliteratur. Einigen dieser Werke wurden in Auswahl digitalisiert.
