Memorie of a Baroque prelate or representation of the knight's order? Franz Anton Maulbertsch and Hradiště Sv. Hypolita/Poltenberg near Znojmo
The remodelling and decoration of the provost St. Hypolyte Church in Hradiště/Poltenberg near Znojmo marks the final phase of the Baroque era building activities of the Knights of the Cross with the Red Star in Moravia. This unique artistic complex is dominated by a monumental wall painting by noted artist Franz Anton Maulbertsch and his collaborators (1776) depicting 'The Finding of the Holy Cross', an important iconographic theme in Austrian baroque piety (Fiducia in crucem Christi).
