Transcript The Story of Nuremberg is comparatively uninjured, and resemb 1 )ouble Chapel of Eger, where the lower chapel is also attributed to Barbarossa. The two chapels are different in character. The lower, which was used as a Gruftkapelle * or place of sepulture, is solemn and almost gloomy in effect; the upper, whilst harmonising with the lower, is in a much lighter and more charming style. The plan of the lower chapel is rectangular with an extension into the Heathen Tower in the shape of a rectangular choir, lighted by a romanesque window. The low, round vaulting of this, the St. Marg Chapel, rests on two low four-cornered pillars and on four columns, the capitals of which, hewn from great blocks, are richly sculptured, one with four eagles, two with foliage, and the fourth with masks. Thev were, according to the manner of construction customary at Nuremberg, set up unwrought and onlv carved afterwards, as may be seen from the capital of the southwest column, which is only decorated on the two inner sides, the other two being unfinished. From the walls spring heavy brackt < i\e the plinths of the arches which support the cross-vaulting. The two low pillars mentioned above divide the main body of the chapel from an irregular intermediate building adjoint! .>tle. Entrance to the upper, or Kaiser, Chapel is only possible from the lower rooms of the Castle, whence, above the flight of steps already referred to, doorway now leads to the chapel, by wav bule or entrance hall. This hall is situated exactly over the western irregular section of the lower chapel ''I'll. \ I • ■ tof probably two twelfth-century Burggwfc liscovered here in tlu- course ot the i We know iltO that a j< w members, male aiul h male, ot Patrician families were buried here in the sixteenth O 126
