“Suprisingly very beautiful”
Review of St. Laurentius

St. Laurentius
Reviewed December 3, 2011

15th Century Lutheran Church. Since the reform until 1969 it were the barons of Crailsheim who were exercising their nomination. At The renovation of 1973 ceiling frescoes first half 15th century in the choir were uncovered with symbols of four evangelists and Angels with Amra Christi. Biblical performances with Our Lady cycle including Assumption of Mary and the crucifixion. Baptismal Font in Renaissance style with year 1581inscripted. In the choir an epitaph from 1596 by Ernst von Crailsheim. An award-winning relief with the resurrection of Christ (John Juncker). In 1903 Roderich von Crailsheim donated a new organ, created by GF Steinmeyer. Two Church chairs with coat of arms of Castell of Countess Margit zu Castell Rüdenhausen, the second wife of count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen, they stood previously in the Dominion Gallery. At the 1974 renovation the artless lime ceiling in the nave was be replaced by a wooden cassette with modern icon images from the biblical history (Hubert Distler).
