Transcript The Churches o) Suremlu ) The background is of gold : the subject is Christ on the Cross between Mary and John ; on the wings, the Mount of Olives and SS. Catherine and Barbara. In this picture the cramping of the figures and the crude drawing of the hands and feet are noticeable, but in the modelling of the heads there is much th.* noble and very beautiful. On the pillar next to (S.) the Haller Altar relief, "Carrying the Cross,'' by Adam Krafft, 1496.

The Crowning of Mary on the first choir pillar on the north side is attributed I \ . StJOCS. On a column to the right of the pulpit hangs I copy of Durer's Inter- merit of Christ, with the armorial bearings of the
