Seiz branch church

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Catholic branch church St. Ulrich in Seiz

The Seiz branch church stands on a hill north of Seiz in the market town of Kammern in the Liesingtal in the Leoben district in Styria . The Roman Catholic branch church of the parish church Kammern, which is under the patronage of Saint Ulrich von Augsburg , belongs to the dean's office in Leoben in the diocese of Graz-Seckau . The church is a listed building ( list entry ).


Initially the church was incorporated into the Göss monastery. The patronage was in 1173 St. Benedict, 1230 St. Martin, and was founded in 1418 as a branch of Chambers of St. Ulrich. In 1956 the interior of the church was restored.


Open vestibules have been added to the west and south of the church. The roof turret on the west wears an onion helmet.

A slightly retracted one-bay choir with a five- eighth end connects to the Gothic nave under a simple wooden coffered ceiling . The wooden west gallery has a parapet with rich late Gothic stencil painting from the end of the 15th century. The choir - changed in Baroque style in the 17th century - has a ridge vault and two-lane tracery windows. The north wall of the choir - partly covered by the baroque pilasters - shows Gothic wall paintings from the middle of the 15th century, painted by the master Konrad von Friesach. The wall painting, uncovered and secured in 1958/1959, originally consisting of 15 image fields, shows a cycle of passion in painted architecture, on the far right with Christ as the Man of Sorrows.

The sacristy attached to the north of the choir has a barrel vault.


The high altar from the end of the 18th century has a tabernacle with a sculptural group of crosses. The side altars are from 1670/1680. The left side altar shows the picture Mariahilf and in the neo-Gothic essay Maria with child from the end of the 19th century. The right side altar shows the pictures of Martin and Sebastian.
