Mysteries of St. Stephans Cathedral

1 x 60 min

We think we know “our Steffl” from the top of the tower to the bottom of the catacombs. Yet this documentary by the multiple prize winning director, Günther Schilhan, proves there is still loads to learn about this Viennese landmark. A digital simulation shows how the cathedral would have looked like with its intended north tower and we will proceed to explain why the tower ended up on the south side. This south tower holds a bizarre secret. There is an exciting theory about the figure of Master Pilgram: has the architect really carved his own figure six times in the cathedral’s walls? But even the patron saint, Stephen, remains a riddle. The Italian town of Caorle also claims to hold the real relic of Saint Stephen.
