German term or phrase: in ihrer Maßwerkfülle aus Vierpässen im Lünettenbereich der Bögen
This is written by a contemporary art historian, describing the similarities between two late medieval churches. Here is the entire sentence (it's a ripper!):

"Tatsächlich stimmen die breiten, hoch aufragenden und die ganze Zone zwischen den von Fialen (kleinen Ecktürmchen) artikulierten Kanten des Turmprismas einnehmenden Maßwerkfenster in ihrer Dreibahnigkeit, in ihrer Maßwerkfülle aus Vierpässen im Lünettenbereich der Bögen, sowie in ihren Bekrönungen durch steile Giebel (Wimperge) beinahe wörtlich mit der Parallelsituation in Freiburg überein."

What is most difficult for me is the term "Vierpässen"...
