St. Stephen's Cathedral is said to be the soul of Vienna. Its origins are Romanesque in styling but the structure has been reconstructed through the centuries and its detailing incorporates later Gothic and Baroque elements as well. The frieze above the Giants' Gateway depicts human and animal figures in scenes from the Last Judgment, which was a popular theme during the late Romanesque period. The hallmark of the richly decorated interior is Anton Pilgram's Pulpit, a Gothic creation depicting the Four Fathers of the Church.
