Franciscan Church: St. Jerome, Vienna Overview

The Franciscan Church, also known as the Church of St. Jerome, is a Roman Catholic parish church located in the heart of Vienna’s Innere Stadt. Dedicated to Saint Jerome, it is the church of the Franciscan Order that has roots in Vienna. The Gothic building of the church was gifted to the order by Archduke Ernst in 1589, which was then consecrated as a new institution with Renaissance style in 1611. Renowned artist Andrea Pozzo designed the Virgin Mary on the high altar in 1707. Before that, a Baroque-style organ was designed by Johann Wockeri in 1643, which is believed to be the oldest existing organ in Vienna. The Reliquary of Saint Hieronymus is also worth taking a look at. The exteriors of the church are a bit lackluster due to years of damage from war and weather, but the interiors are exquisite and largely embellished with gold.
