Dramatic paintings on vaults and walls visualized the biblical history to the congregation in the mediaeval church. Today, a fraction of these fragile paintings still survive but are constantly at risk and deserve expert attention and care.

This book contains a set of scientific papers which establish the state of the art for conservation of al secco murals. The book is richly illustrated with examples of Swedish and foreign mural paintings.
