St. Stephen's, Vienna

Latest book from the library is The English Assassin by Daniel Silva, in which art restorer and Israeli agent Gabriel Allon returns to St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, where he had once restored the baroque altar painting "The Stoning of St. Stephen" by Tobias Pock.

The cathedral is interesting in that it's the church of the newsworthy Christoph Schönborn, and it has a lot of great art and architecture as well. Here are a few photos from the Wikipedia pages ....

- Pulpit of John Capistrano (detail)

- St. Catherine's chapel
