This is one of only two near-complete Nottingham alabaster altarpieces in the country – the other is the Swansea Altarpiece in the Victoria and Albert Museum. In medieval times most alabaster panels would have been grouped together in altarpieces. The five panels read chronologically from left to right and show the Betrayal, Flagellation, Crucifixion, Entombment and Resurrection. In the first panel, Judas’ kiss identifies Christ to soldiers who will arrest him.
