Bianca Gaßner: Four memorial monuments of the parish church of Grades, Corinthia. Analysis, conservation and restoration. Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The epitaphs of the parish church St. Andreas in Grades are witnesses of the history of the
small town. Four of these memorial monuments, which are on display in the entrance hall and
on the facade of the church, are dealt with in this work. The stone materials used for the
monuments originate from the direct surrounding. All four assets show complicated
mineralogic compositions. The detected damage patterns are a direct result of these
mineralogic compositions with the relevant weathering. The main emphasis of the present
thesis lies on the development of a consolidation concept for a very complex damage pattern
existing on one of the monuments. Scientific analysis are conducted in order to support the
material-and-condition surveys and for the development of a conservation concept. Two of the
monuments are conserved in the course of the thesis.


Keywords: consolidation, metamorphic stones, multifarious mineralogic composition, memorial monument, Corinthia
