It is dedicated to the Saints Rupert and Virgil. Location The cathedral is located in the left-bank part of Salzburg, below the fortress Hohensalzburg. It is surrounded in the north by the Residence Square, in the south by the chapter court (Kapitelplatz), in the east by the new residence with chimes and in the west of the Cathedral Square (Domplatz). It is connected in the north with the old residence and in the south with the Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter by cathedral arcades. History Over the centuries there have been several Vorläuferbauten (precursor buildings) of today's cathedral. Peter Church Rupert of Worms hat at the beginning of the 8th Century the first church built on the very site on which the present cathedral is situated. It was the church that was consecrated to saint Peter - Sankt Peterskirche, even then, it had considerable proportions. Virgilianische (Virgilian) Cathedral The oldest predecessor of today's cathedral which was already designed as a dome, was built in 767-774 by Bishop Virgil and belonged with its three naves to the three largest churches of the 8th Century: 66 meters long and 33 meters wide, which corresponds to an area of 2 178 sqm. It was the first basilica in the East Frankish kingdom. In 1139 it was provided with two high steeples. On the occasion of the inauguration on 24 September (probably the correct date, other sources report of 25 September) 774, Virgil had the bones of Rupert of Worms from the Collegiate Church of St. Peter transferred into the new cathedral. However, this first cathedral was still dedicated to St. Peter, Rupert was just a supporting patron. However, already 845 burned this building after lightning strike under Archbishop Liupram down. Hartwig's Cathedral Under Archbishop Hartwig again emerged a new cathedral, also known as the Salzburg Cathedral, but this was in 1167 again destroyed, this time by the Counts of Plain. It is believed that the Romanesque lion in the gate input to Langenhof in the Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse still stems from this cathedral. The new building under Hartwig primarily concerned the western facade and the priest choir. Konradinischer Cathedral Main article: Konradinischer (Conradian) Cathedral On the remains of the Hartwig's Cathedral under Archbishop Conrad III. of Wittelsbach in 1177 the even more stately Conradian Cathedral was erected, the then largest basilica with 5200 sqm north of the Alps: 122 m total length , 48 m width and 57.5 m nave transept length; New plans of the Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich When the cathedral was severely damaged in a fire in 1598, Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau it had demolished to build an even bigger one. To this end, he also had parts of the medieval city and the cathedral cemetery (now Residence Square ) torn down, which until today as places around the cathedral have been preserved. Especially the ruthless demolition of Domfriedhofs (cathedral cemetery) (which then also was the town cemetery) still hurts because all tombs from previous times were destroyed (of the archbishops, canons and renowned citizens of Salzburg) and thus not preserved for posterity anymore. Vincenzo Scamozzi Dombaumeister (cathedral builder), which was in 1604 engaged by Wolf Dietrich, manufactured the first plans, which he delivered to the Archbishop until 1606/1607, but because of the capture and removal of Wolf Dietrich 1611 the building had to be stopped. Today Salzburg Cathedral His successor, Archbishop Markus Sittikus, but removed the completed first foundations and began the construction of a smaller cathedral building. This cathedral building, which was now planned by cathedral architect Santino Solari, could on 25 September in 1628 be inaugurated under Paris Lodron. The city celebrated one of the largest festivals that has ever existed in Salzburg. On 18 February 1663 a hurricane roared over Salzburg, destroying the copper roof of the cathedral, the spiers of St. Andrew and St. John at Imberg together with the bells throwing to the surrounding houses. As early as on 15 July in 1945 began the restoration work on the cathedral, which was severely damaged by bombings in World War II. On 26 May 1949 then participated 35 000 people at the Salzburg Domfest (festival) in which after a large procession of Archbishop Andreas Rohracher the 100-pound gold-plated dome cross is drawn to the restored dome. After nearly 15 years of reconstruction period was held on 1st of May in 1959 the first service by Archbishop Rohracher. Renovations In the years 1897 to 1901, the cathedral was renovated. From 1995 to 1998 there was a complete exterior renovation. Unfortunately, in doing so, some works had obviously not been carried out correctly and it came immediately after completion of the work to consequential damages. This led to years of disputes with the construction companies. Finally, due to storm damage in 2007 it came again to a major renovation. In addition to the repair of the damages of the renovation in the 1990s, the roof also was renewed, which was last renewed in 1920. Alone has the roof, without a dome and towers , an area of 4359 square meters. Of the "old demages" of the renovation 1995/1998 may be mentioned: 12.8 km (sic) joints had to be opened and closed again, it came to cleaning and removal of impregnation, had to be taken off the balustrades and balconies and reinstalled and it came to covering of all cornices with more than 13 tons of lead roof and in addition numerous stone completions had to be carried out and it was a Taubenabwehr (protection systems against pigeons) attached.
