The Dom Museum Wien Collections
Permanent Exhibition
Since its foundation in 1933 the museum’s holdings comprise its own collection as well as permanent loans from St. Stephen’s Cathedral and from other ecclesiastical institutions in the Archdiocese of Vienna. Sculptures, altar paintings, liturgical objects, and manuscripts all attest to the fact that the Catholic Church has been a major patron and promoter of developments in European art for over 2000 years.
The dialogue between art and the church continues to this day, as is evidenced by the extensive collection of Monsignor Otto Mauer, a priest and art connoisseur. Since our museum’s relaunch, the expansion of Mauer’s legendary collection and, with it, the promotion of contemporary art have moved to the center of our activities.

This volume commemorates the re-opening of Dom Museum Wien and presents fascinating items from the collections, as well as an account of the architectural re-design of the building, with text and images. Well-known authors analyze selected historic exhibits from the Middle Ages and the Baroque period, elaborating new perspectives.
Similarly, the essays on the legendary art patron Otto Mauer open up a new understanding of his activities supporting post-war avant-garde artists. Another part of the publication covers the architectural challenges of creating a contemporary museum within a historic context. The multifaceted volume closes with dialogues amongst the most important mediators between art and the church.
