Dehio Lower Austria north of the Danube 1990

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Dehio-Handbuch - Die Kunstdenkmäler Österreichs - Niederösterreich north of the Danube appeared in 1990 as the eighth volume in the new Austrian Dehio series started by the Federal Monuments Office in 1976 . In 2003 the band Niederösterreich followed, south of the Danube.


The manual lists monuments within the meaning of Section 1 of the Monument Protection Act, i.e. immovable and movable objects of historical, artistic and other cultural significance regardless of whether there is a public interest in their preservation. On the one hand, the Dehio is an aid to monuments research, on the other hand, an art guide, as it should also spread the appreciation for art and cultural monuments.

The work on Lower Austria began in 1978 with Eva Frodl-Kraft , whereby it was decided with the State Conservation for Lower Austria in 1980 to publish two volumes, north and south of the Danube . For Lower Austria north of the Danube, it took 10 years to be published, especially due to the more subtle inventory methods and the frequent changes of authors.

The State Conservatory for Lower Austria with the director Werner Kitlitschka with Erich Zinsler, Ulrike Knall-Brskovsky and Renate Madritsch participated . Helmut Windl from the Landesmuseum Niederösterreich worked on the prehistoric and early historical monuments. The list of historical organs was drawn up by Hans Heiling, edited by Karl Schütz , and revised and supplemented by Walter Brauneis. Hans Stöckelmaier added important historical musical instruments, with historical bells taken from the work Tönendes Erz (1961) by Andreas Weißenbäck and Josef Pfundner . Elga Lanc gave help with matters of medieval painting, as did Elisabeth Oberhaidacher with glass painting. Numerous people supported the company by inspecting plans and taking photos, in particular the abbot Bernhard Naber of Altenburg Abbey was named.
