St. Stephen's Cathedral Pulpit
The Cathedral of St. Stephen, also called Stephansdom, stands in the heart of old Vienna. The Cathedral is considered a work of Gothic art, and boosts of a beautiful carved pulpit. So that the local language sermon could be better heard by the worshipers before microphones and loud speakers, the pulpit stands against a pillar out in the nave, instead of in the chancel at the front of the church.
