Transcript The Churches of Nuremberg On the buttresses of the east choir are some sculptures in half-relief, representing the Passion, and at the east end, facing the Rathaus, is the Schreyer Monument (Schreyer's Begrabnuss), a high relief by Adam Kratft M492). Nobly conceived and nobly executed, these representations of the Passion and Burial of Christ are among the most noteworthy of the master's works.

The animals on the capitals of the door of the south are full of characteristic humour. One trace here some of that mockery of the monks in which the mediaeval masons not infrequently indulged, and of which there is a famous example at Strasburg.

Above the door called the Schautthiire (show-door) on the S.E. side of the church, near the guard-house, is a Last Judgment (1485), probabh n Krafft en, 2co). It is a line and interest At the
