Transcript The Churches oj* Nuremberg The east end of the choir contains splendid windows (see p. 213). The subject of the first, on the north side, behind the altar of St. John, is the wanderings of the children of Israel; of the second the Passion, of the third the Transfiguration, of the fourth the donor, Emperor Frederic III. and his consort, of the fifth, Saints and Fathers of the Church. But far the finest and most famous of the windows is the sixth, the Volkamer window. It is a ** Jesse" window, displaying the genealogical tree of Christ, and, below, the founder and his family. The seventh, or Schliissfelder window, represents the holy mill and the four Evangelists with the four Apostles, after Durer, beneath. All these belong to the last half of the fifteenth century ; but the eighth is a modern one v 1 i, commemorating the re-establishment of the German Empire. The Tucher window next the sacristy was painted by Springlin, 1451, and com beautiful red glass in the early Renaissance Another noticeable window is that on the south side, exhibiting the arms of the Schmidmayer family. The designs are attributed to Durer. Near this stands one of the old carved chairs, in which the Masters of the Guilds once sat in turn to receive alms. Of the chief treasures of the St. Lorenzkircl. have already dealt sufHcientlv with two—the Pix or Ciborium, the Weihbrodgehause or Sacramentshaiislein or whatever name we choose to give to Adam Kr.r masterpiece l— \ piece of sculpture ra: Like a foamy sheet of fountains rising thro' the painu and the Angels' Greeting, and the still finer wood-gilt crucifix of the High Altar, by \ i.* The 1 See pp. 203-5.
