Abstract

The statues of Saint John the Evangelist and Virgin Mary were made after 1783. Their iconography suggests that originally they may have been located where the gothic crucifix is presented - together they created the Crucifixion Group. In iconography, St. John is depicted as a young man as, according to tradition, he was considered to be the youngest and, therefore, most beloved disciple of Christ.
