    The Sinful Man and The Love of God: Peter Trellund’s devotional board
    from 1586: This article presents the altarpiece-like object donated to the
    Danish King Frederik II in 1586 by the master calligrapher Peter Trellund
    from Ribe. The piece has been in the National Museum in Copenhagen since
    1877 but has received almost no scholarly attention despite its lavish style.
    The board is composed of 21 panels with ornate writing inserted into a frame
    in the style of the early Renaissance of northern Europe. This article identifies
    the inscriptions on the board and discusses their meaning with regard to the
    function of the piece. The conclusion is that Trellund’s gift to the king is to be
    understood as a Lutheran devotional object addressing the sinful nature of
    man and how man is to gain salvation through faith alone, to be used in the
    private meditations of the king.
