The remodelling and decoration of the provost St. Hypolyte Church in Hradiště/Poltenberg near Znojmo marks the final phase of the Baroque era building activities of the Knights of the Cross with the Red Star in Moravia. This unique artistic complex is dominated by a monumental wall painting by noted artist Franz Anton Maulbertsch and his collaborators (1776) depicting 'The Finding of the Holy Cross', an important iconographic theme in Austrian baroque piety (Fiducia in crucem Christi).
