The Artist-Priest Sieger Köder - Glowing Colours, Floating Figures
Inspired by Chagall and El Greco, the artist-priest Sieger Köder has created a cycle, consisting of 8 stained glass windows, to be found in the modern Church of the Holy Spirit. More of his artistic work can be seen in the Chapels of St. Francis and St. Michael.
The first principals of the buildings were the prince abbots of Ellwangen, following by the prince provosts from the beginning of 1460, who ruled in Ellwangen until 1802.
Such influential lines as the palatine line of the house of Wittelsbach or the Schoenborns, who were said to be "obsessed by the building-worm", resided in Ellwangen and brought with them such well-known artists and archictects as Balthasar Neumann, Maximilian von Welsch or Christoph Thomas Scheffler.
