Zusammenfassung: The themes of this treatise are technology, history, and conservation problems of the fragments of the choir screen complex at Hildesheim. Some questions along these lines could be answered in this paper; some other questions could be formulated.
The surfaces of the objects are made of high temperature plaster of Paris. With regard to technology, new insights are to be presented into how the choir screen complex and the fragments were made. Contrary to earlier assumptions, it is the application technique with which the object surfaces were created.
As far as the art-historical part of this treatise is concerned, the current state of research only allows for hypothesizing the dating of the Hildesheim choir screen complex. Bernward's canonization with its ensuing structural modifications in St. Michael, may plausibly have been a direct impulse.
The climatic conditions appropriate for storing and presenting the fragments are crucial for their conservation.
It is emphasized that measures of conserving the objects must at all events be tested in specimens first.
