The pulpit in Stephansdom is a gothic masterpiece by Meister Pilgram (= Master Pilgram ) - and when you get close to the pulpit, you will see Master Pilgram looking out of a window at the foot of the pulpit - this sculpture is called "Der Fenstergucker"(see my picture). The 4 large sculptures around the pulpit show the "4 tempers", the 4 fathers of the church. Normally a pulpit is built in the forward-part of the church,next to the main altar, But this one is built the back of the cathedral. Take a closer look at the hand-rail of the gothic steps : several rats seem to crawl up there. It is a pity, my pics about it are not good enough to be shown here, because the use of flashlight is forbidden in the church of course !
