Abstract: The barrel vault of the refectory in the former Benedictine monastery of Frauenzell shows an elaborate plastering work as well as several paintings. The composition itself is a mixture of Italian and French influences of the early 18th century. Therefore the object is a treasure of the region Oberpfalz in Bavaria, Germany. The object is even more special due to still remaining traces of different building utilizations after the resolution of the monastery in 1803. Within the context of this work the compilation of current inventory and its condition with regard to the traces of history as found in the refectory have been carried out. Therefore several examinations and analysis have been conducted, so that the object can be seen in its context of time an region. Furthermore the damages were analysed, their causes have been determined and associated with the current structuralphysicochemikal conditions in the refectory. A conservation concept as well as an optional restauration concept has been developed for further handling of the refectory. This work shall be the basis for further discussions concerning the future handling of the refectory in the former monastery of Frauenzell.
