Court Church and Crucifixion in the Crowd
After the construction of the Grazer Burg (Graz Castle), Emperor Frederick III (1415–1493) used it as his residence. His self-conception as an emperor wanted by God is shown by the construction of the Court Church (started 1438, today’s Graz Cathedral). For the first time, he had the ruler’s gallery, traditionally arranged in the west, moved to the choir area to celebrate the Holy Masses in the midst of the priesthood. A walkway from the castle took him directly to the oratory. He had his motto AEIOU placed nine times in the church. The church consecrated to St Giles is based on plans by Hans Niesenberger from Swabia. It is a pseudo-basilica or hall church with a long choir, as derived from churches of mendicant orders. Its design was repeated in Semriach, the Graz City Parish Church and in Fernitz. In 1457, the Court Church was endowed with the largest wooden panel picture in the Alpine region, painted by Conrad Laib from Salzburg. The »Kreuzigung im Gedräng« (Crucifixion in the Crowd) depicts the death of Jesus in a grandiose, figure-rich and expressive manner with respect to gestures and facial expressions. Originally, it probably comes from the cross altar of the former rood screen and can now be seen in the oratory of Emperor Frederick III.
