Chapterhouse The election of the abbot and the investiture of novices take place in this room. All the paintings are Baroque; those on the ceiling are by Michael Rottmayer, those on the wall were made by a lay brother called Mathias Gusner. He painted the members of the House of Babenberg who are buried here ( use annotations). The Romanwsque, sculptured tombstone in the middle is the grave of the last Babenberg Duke, Frederick the Quarrelsome; he died in 1246. The windows were made in the 19th Century in Kramsach in Tyrol. The rosette-window was at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1889, where it won the first prize for its colours and their composition. Text: Abbey of Heiligenkreuz. https://www.stift-heiligenkreuz.org
