The Reliefs of the Passion from St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna

Endangered - Conserved - Presented - from Nov 11, 2009 until Feb 10, 2010

St. Stephen’s Cathedral houses a wealth of significant pictorial works of stonemasonry. One of these masterpieces is the cycle of reliefs devoted to the Passion of Christ, once installed at the treasury near the choir. Six reliefs from this early-sixteenth-century ensemble have survived. Sculpted from large sandstone blocks, they are impressive and detailed descriptions of the way of the Cross.

They are currently being restored in the workshops of the Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments in order to be eventually reinstalled in St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
The presentation at the Belvedere offers an unprecedented opportunity of viewing the work from a close distance, if only for a brief period. A documentation provides information about the current restoration and the latest findings of research.
This is a cooperation between the St. Stephen’s Cathedral Workshop and the Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments.

Curator: Veronika Pirker-Aurenhammer
