Praxiteles thinks that it might be the Franciscan church which was bombed during the war and only partially restored. If its is, then the chancel -which is roofed – has important medieval galss depicting the passion of Our Lord and the life of St. Francis (the usual Franciscan assimilaton of Christ and St. Francis). It should be near the Grafengasse and is also called the Barfuesserkirche.

The Franciscans made their foundation in Erfurt in 1224. The church was rebuilt inn 1291 and chancel and choir were built in 1316 (the present roofed section).
