St Stephen’S Cathedral In Vienna

About St Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna

St Stephen’s Cathedral is also known by the name of Stephansdom, and is one of the most religious buildings in Vienna. It has been witness to many important events in the history of Austria and is one of the popular symbols of the city. By the starting of the 12th century, Vienna had gone on to become one of the important centres of German civilization and the 4 current churches and that includes the Parish church, was no longer capable of meeting the religious needs of the company.

The interior along with the exteriors of the church

In fact the church has been dedicated to St Stephen and it was oriented to the sunrise of his feast day on 26th December and this is when construction formally began in this venue. This cathedral has been built of limestone and is 351 feet long, 130 feet wide and 446 feet tall. In due course of time the polluting materials have gone on to give a black color to the church but recent restoration works that has begun on the project have restored its original color. This church has an old organ donation tradition. In the year 1334, the first tradition has been mentioned. The main entrance of the church has been given the name of Giant’s door

The main area of the church goes on to contain 18 altars, and that is in various chapels. Right from the earlier days, one of the focal points of the cathedral is that it has been surrounded by cemeteries that date back to the age old days. A lot of masses do continue that it is a great feeling to be buried in such a church and this is close to the physical presence of the saints whose relics were being preserved there. The people who were less honoured were buried but that was near to the church as well.

The repair work

The repair along with the preservation of the fabric of the cathedral has been a recurring process ever since the construction of it began in the year 1147. The limestone that is porous is prone to weathering, but when you go on to coat it with silicone, it is going to trap the moisture inside the stone and it is also going to crack faster when the water is going to seep in thereby letting it remain upstanding for many years to come.
