GENERAL HISTORY

This article is available in German only.

COATS OF ARMS

The castle’s Upper Chapel has been decorated since 1982 with 71 wooden coats of arms owned by the castle society. These coats of arms were cut in 1980 by Franz Zierer, a whittler from Fuerstenfeld in eastern Styria and hand-painted by conservator Elisabeth Germann from Graz.

APSE TOWER BELL

After several years of silence, the society’s old apse tower bell (crafted in 1763 by Martinus Feltl in Graz) finally got its sound back. This achievement was accomplished with the help of a specialised company’s profound technical skills and its completion required a lot of time and strong personal efforts by the involved board members.

THE CHAPEL’S NEW HANGING CRUCIFIX

A new adorning crucifix was especially crafted for St. Anne’s chapel by the society’s former treasurer Erwin Kugi, who is also a gifted wood carver. With great effort and by applying maximum safety standards, the crucifix was mounted in the apse’s wide arch just above the altar by the chairman and his two valued assistants. Just like the old crucifix (stolen in 2012), the new one now decorates the mystic chapel interior. To conclude its reinstallation, the cross was consecrated by the minister of Gösting during a festive, solemn ceremony in December 2014. May the new crucifix stay in its place for a long time!
