About the object
The altarpiece depicts Bernhard, besides Laurentius, Jacob the Elder and Wilhelm of Maleval. It probably comes from the Wilhelmite monastery in Freiburg. Wilhelm, patron of the order named after him, died in 1157 as a hermit in Tuscany. According to legend, he had his armour and helmet fitted for life.
