Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

As a princely seat and commerical hub, Vienna's status as a leading art centre in late medieval Central Europe had firm foundations. In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, its wealthy elite financed the remodelling or complete rebuilding of all principal churches and public buildings. This course addresses the most important sacred project of the period – the ongoing building and manifold remodellings of St Stephen’s as a city church, princely mausoleum, and seat of a collegiate chapter and then bishopric. Analysis of well preserved spatial and visual media will offer insights into processes of creation and reception, and bring us closer to the perspectives of the church’s patrons, artists, and congregations.
