Predigerkirche Eisenach

Thuringian Museum - Predigerkirche

The church “Predigerkirche” in Eisenach surprises with the largest portfolio of medieval woodcarving in Thuringia. The works of art are exhibited in the Dominicans’ crypt from the year 1243.

The collection which was established in 1899 contains sculptures and altar constructions, pictorial works, tombs, liturgical devices and one of the early profane sculptures of the Middle Ages of Heinrich Raspe. It is impressive to see the sacral works of art of different regions of the country since the 12th century. The Predigerkirche originally was a part of the monastery complex, constructed in the honour of Landgravine Elisabeth. From 1544, the Latin School St. Georgen had been located here, the most famous pupil of which was Johann Sebastian Bach.
