Our cover illustration is of Veit Voss's Angelic Salutation, one of the most beautiful examples of German Renaissance sculpture, commissioned in 1517 for St Lorenz, Nuremberg. As the religious climate of Germany changed and the city embraced Lutheranism (1525), the sculpture was endangered by the wave of iconoclasm which swept the city. It was saved by its close association with the wealthy Tocher family which had commissioned it. A cover was made for it, which was occasionally removed for display to distinguished visitors, and not permanently removed until the middle of the nineteenth century.
