Roman and Styrian Baroque Architecture
With Mariahilf (1611) and the Graz Mausoleum (1615), Giovanni Pietro de Pomis introduced the early Baroque in Graz. The Jesuit mother church, Il Gesù in Rome, was the model for a new type: the wall-pillar church. Peter Franz Carlone first implemented it in Styria with the Jesuit church of Leoben-St Xaver (1665). Chapels were built instead of side aisles, which entailed many altars as new spiritual places. They were mainly used by newly emerging confraternities. The main builders were the monasteries: Domenico Sciassia worked in St Lambrecht, transformed the late Gothic pilgrimage church of Mariazell into a wall-pillar church with a triple-tower front (1644–1683), built the Abbey Church of Vorau and planned Stainz. In the 18th century, these were Styrian master builders: Andreas Stengg (Graz-Mariatrost), his son Johann Georg Stengg (Calvary Church, Barmherzigenkirche in Graz and the Abbey Church of Rein) and Joseph Stengg (City Parish Church Graz). The cloverleaf-like ground plan of a triconch church in Pöllau (1712) by Joachim Carlone was taken up in Birkfeld, Ratten und Stanz. Joseph Hueber set strong scenic accents with his churches Graz-Mariahilf (1742), St Veit am Vogau (1755) and Weizberg (1757).
