Northern Oratorio in Salzburg Cathedral

North Oratory

The North Oratorio in the DomQuartier is used for special exhibitions. The last room, a chapel dedicated to Saint Rupert, is particularly worth seeing for its rich artistic decoration.
The chapel of the baroque cathedral (1628), is located in the northern oratory. It was equipped under Archbishop Paris Lodron and consecrated in honor of St. Rupert. For this so-called Rupertusoratorium, court carpenter Simon Claner erected a freestanding altar retable. This forms the frame for a painting that makes the death of Rupert visible to the viewer.
