Excerpt from In the SchillingscourtThis is how there happened to loom up beside the homely gable house occupied by the monks this most elegant facade, with its broad-columned hallway, that supported a second story, with great bow-windows and arched cornices and consoles that were beautifully carved. The columns of the immense arched door in the vestibule also displayed marvelously executed designs in flowers and fruit artistically carved in the stone.The first-floor, with its pillared corridors, extended the depth of three windows beyond the second story, thus forming a communication with the southern wall of the monastery proper, and forming a charming terrace on either side of the columned hall, inclosed by stone balustrades, from which a number of doors led to the floor above.The nineteenth century can guess but little of the experiences of this foreigner on German ground during those depressed times. The monastery then stood upon a common, along the roadway of which only a few mud huts were scattered, whose inhabitants scarcely ventured to peer out of their wooden window-shutters at night when they heard tramping of horses and imperious voices in the vicinity of the cloister.The red light of glaring torches rising above the high walls, the infernal noise of yelping and baying dogs, and swearing troopers, with their neighing, stamping steeds, seemed like a scene from Hades; but it was hushed as suddenly as an outburst of hobgoblin frenzy, and the hunters crept enviously back to their beds.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
