The Life Journey of Charles IV – Fourteen Stations
The exhibition presents Charles IV not only as a strong-minded politician, but also as an ordinary man with everyday concerns similar to the people of today. And the same as everyone, he has certain personality traits, sometimes helping him resolve his life situation, at other times complicating it. In any case, Charles IV is a historic ﬁgure which can see the outside world in a wider context, using his faith and literacy to fulﬁll his statesman’s and dynastic concepts. The exhibition comprises of 14 text panels (referring to the fourteen stations of the cross) and one introductory panel on which the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV deposits the holy remains into the reliquary at Karlštejn Castle.
