Johanniskirche

Die spätromanische Pfeilerbasilika wurden im Zeitraum zwischen 1220 und
1250 über den Fundamenten einer früheren, aus dem 12. Jahrhundert
stammenden Kirche erbaut und ist Johannes dem Täufer geweiht. Sie ist
reich an plastischem Schmuck aus Tier- und Fabelwelt sowie an pflanzlicher
Ornamentik. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit verdient am Hauptportal im Tympanon
der gekreuzigte Christus als Siegeskönig.

Die Kirche hat in der Zeit der Gotik und des Barock eingreifende
Veränderungen erfahren. In der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts
erfolgte die "Reromanisierung" mit dem Ziel, den ursprünglichen Zustand
wiederherzustellen. Karl Dehner aus Rottenburg hat 1878 den Innenraum
ausgemalt.

Seit 1977 beherbergen die beiden Seitenschiffe Originalfragmente von
Bauplastiken aus Johanniskirche und Münster. Im Chor steht das Original
der spätromanischen Madonna mit Christuskind

Im Chor erinnert ein barockes Gemälde an die Ursprungssage der Kirche, die
sogenannte Ringlegende.


Menashe Kadishman
Mourning (Trauernde)

Die Skulptur einer trauernden Frau hat Menashe Kadishman (geb. 1932)
geschaffen, ein Maler und Bildhauer aus Tel Aviv. In Deutschland wurde er
bekannt durch die Bodeninstallation "Shalechet" (Gefallenes Laub) im
Jüdischen Museum in Berlin.

The marker is visible just to the right of the entrance.


"Trauernde" wurde mit Laserstrahl aus der mehr als zentimeterstarken
Stahlplatte herausgeschnitten. Die Frau ist über einen kleinen Kasten, den
Sarg ihres Kindes gebeugt, des Kindes, das sie verlor durch Krankheit,
Hunger, Krieg. Durch die Aufstellung unmittelbar auf dem Boden wird auch
daran erinnert, was der Johannisplatz einst - bis 1803 - war, einer der
Friedhöfe der Stadt.

Die Trauernde von Menashe Kadishman ist ein zeitloser Appell gegen das
sinnlose Töten, das Menschen einander zufügen - unabhängig von nationaler
und ethnischer Zugehörigkeit, von jedem Glauben, von jeder Kultur.

St. John's Church


This Late Romanesque pillared basilica was constructed between 1220-50 upon the foundations of an earlier, 12th-century church and dedicated to John the Baptist. It is
richly ornamented with sculptured motifs from fables and the animal- and plant-kingdoms. Particularly noteworthy is the crucified Christ as the victorious king in the main portal in the tympanum.

In the intervening Gothic and Baroque periods the church has undergone several changes. In the second half of the 19th century the church underwent a "re-romanesque-ization", with the intent of restoring the original condition. Karl Dehner, from Rottenburg, was responsible for painting the interior in 1878.

Since 1977,



the two aisles contain original fragments of sculptures from St. John's Church and the (nearby) cathedral. In the choir there stands the original late Romanesque Madonna with Christ child.

In the choir, a Baroque painting commemorates the origin of the church, the
so-called Ring Legend.

Menashe Kadishman
Mourning (Trauernde)


This sculpture of a grieving woman was created by Menashe Kadishman (born 1932), a painter and sculptor from Tel Aviv. In Germany he became known for the installation "Shalechet" (Fallen Foliage) in the Jewish Museum in Berlin.

The "mourning" was laser-cut from steel plate more than centimeter thick. The woman is bowed over a small box, the coffin of her chid, the child she lost to sickness, to hunger, to war. Placing the sculpture directly on the ground reminds one of what this plaza in front of the church was - until 1803 - one of the cemeteries of the city.

Menashe Kadishman's "Mourning" is a timeless appeal against the senseless killing that people inflict on each other - regardless of their nationality or ethnicity, belief, or culture.
