European Heritage Days 2011:

“Masonry in Mauren” - heritage protection considerations and archeological reflections in regard to the parish church of St. Peter and Paul in Mauren.

 

The church hill of Mauren is associated with several centuries of history. The parish church of St. Peter and Paul is the work of the Princely Building Inspector Laurenz Vogel of Vienna and was completed in 1843. The present appearance of the church dates from the extensive renovation carried out between 1986 and 1988 but under the church foundations there are the masonry remains of a Roman hypocaust heating system of cultural and historical importance in addition to traces of former churches on the same site. The architectural finds and more than 400 graves containing objects of exceptional interest have been archeologically examined and preserved. The relics have been placed under the nave and may be viewed by the general public. Inside the actual church, there are also numerous art treasures and cultural items. This summer, the plaster of the church, which is classed as an historical monument, will receive expert attention since it has deteriorated over the years. The work now being carried out includes the restoration of the entire outer façade.

 

Saturday, 3 September 2011: 1.00 p.m., 2.00 p.m., 3.00 p.m., 4.00 p.m.
