The 15th-century Bishop Andrzej of Bnin is depicted on his tombstone at the Heavenly Gates, surrounded by the Apostles, in the presence of God himself, who is seated on a throne with the bishop’s soul, purged of his sins, in his lap. The work is an excellent specimen of the kind of bronze tombstones that were imported from Flanders in the 15th century. One of the Bishop’s key areas of focus was his anti-Teutonic policy, the goal of which was to regain the land they had occupied. During the war against the Teutonic Order, he lent money to the King to pay for hired mercenaries. When the money ran out, the Bishop remunerated the soldiers out of his own private coffers.
