    I am currently researching St Paul’s retable which is found at the cathedral of Mdina Malta. The painting has been dated 15th century. And as all items clothing and maritime picture is telling me more that the painting is 13th-14th century. I am looking for opinions and points that would confirm or negate my suspicion.The Lateen sail and mainsail mix is recorded to have developed from the Northern Baltic cog adding the lateen sail in 1300’s, when being adapted to the Mediterranean. The out of port steering method and rudder is attached towards starboard and not centered, giving an impression to the 1300’s. I have attached a study that has concluded that the painting is from the 15th century http://www.joannalace.org.uk/STPAUL-revised.pdf I Look forward to comments and thoughts from all. Thank you and best wish to all. Marvic

    In the Joanna Lace article the maritime part of the painting (bottom right) is so dark that I cannot make out sufficient detail, even when magnified.

    Can you provide a clearer picture, or a link to one?
