Monasteries and Abbeys
From the 11th to the 13th century, monasteries of the Benedictines (Göß, Admont, St Lambrecht), Cistercians (Rein, later Neuberg) and Augustinian Canons (Seckau, Vorau, Stainz) were important centres of mission, culture and the arts. The Neuberg Minster is one of the most remarkable and aesthetically felicitous Gothic monastery churches. From 1327, the church, cloister and chapter house were built by Cistercians from Heiligenkreuz. The bright church is clearly structured, with naves of equal width, uniform clustered pillars and a straight choir end. Also in 1327, the Benedictines in St Lambrecht began with the construction of their new church. The hall church type and the clustered pillar form were also used there. The Admont church mason’s guild is documented in a confraternity book (1480–1523). Its master builders worked in St Marein near Knittelfeld and Rottenmann, among other places. The striking richness of decoration of columns, vaults and parapets in Aflenz, Eisenerz, Gaishorn, Göß, Gröbming, Großreifling and Landl is associated with their masters.
