Transcript The Story of Nurem floor that it broke in two, and had to be bound together with the ring. The coloured stone head above the choir-arch is supposed to be a memorial of this castle chaplain, who so cleverly obtained cheap transport for the Church ! Without taking this legend altogether au /</ lettrt, we may think it likely from the style and material that these pillars were brought from Italian building. On the north-east wall of the chapel is an altar- piece with wings by Wolgemut - SS. WYnceslaus and Martin, and SS. Barbara and Elizabeth on the reverse. The carved figures in the centre of the altar- piece on the south-east wall are by Wit Stoss, and the wings are of the school of W olgemut. On the south wall are two pictures by Burgkmair (?) and a relief after designs by Adam Krafft. On th .11 are a picture by Kulmbach and a remarkable relief by Krafft, and on the north wall two pictures by Strigel, and one by Holbein the elder. The quadrangular aperture,1 which occupies the I space between the four pillars and allows a full fiei of the lower chapel, was for a long time walled up. This was done after the chapel had beet. over, probably towards the end of the fifteenth century. Ably restored in 1892 the chapel is no.. much in its original state. The plaster, repeated layers of which had covered the capitals and ornaments with a thick crust, preventing their shape from being anv longer recognisable, has been removed. The r parts of the ornaments have been very skilfully replaced. The original red stone flo- s laid bare and the aperture reopened. There is >ome disagreement as to the purpose of this opening. We are usually told that it was made for a united church 1 That at Eger is octafOOtl 128
