Part of the reading corridor.
Every evening at eight o’clock, the monks convene here to read a chapter from the Rule of St. Benedict. Every year on Holy Thursday, a foot washing ceremony takes place here. As an imitation of Christ’s humility, the abbot washes the feet of the 12 oldest men from parishes under Heiligenkreuz’s pastoral care.
The lower windows are all modern, but in the semi-circular window over the reading-pulpit you can see original glass from the 13th Century; these sections are light grey. Thwe windows consist of glass and lead. The first Cistercians did not use any colours in their stained glass, bencause they wanted the window to represent the simple life.
