Ideological programme
The ideological programme, depicted in a rich sculptural and pictorial layer, expressed a vision of the glory of God proclaimed through the Word and music, and included references to the history of the diocese itself, highlighted by the sculptures of David with a harp and the prophet Jeremiah with a lyre, as well as Bishop Otto of Bamberg and Duke Ernest Boguslav von Croy as the first and last pastor of the diocese. The focal point is the figure of St John the Baptist in the centre of the composition.
