Abstract

Founded at Acre, the Teutonic Order governed an independent Prussian state on the southern Baltic coast, the important region for Hanseatic League. During this session we shall explore in what degree the outside origin of burghers was reflected in the art in Gdańsk, if the artworks of foreign origin were seen there as something ‘different’ and if there are connections between art in the State of the Teutonic Order and other regions, such as the Northern Baltic Sea coasts, the Palestinian Islamic and Byzantine architecture and castles founded by Cassimir III the Great in Provinces of Kingdom of Poland.
