Overview:  
 
Abstract: The south portal (Last Judgement) of the church of St. Sebald in Nuremberg dates from 1320. The investigation of the tympanum relief shows – under some later settings – a relatively well preserved original polychromy. Investigations of this polychromy and the technological structure allowed a nearly complete reconstruction.
Besides, technological comparisons with other stone settings of the 13th and 14th century were made.
