The Holy Trinity Church, Salzburg

The Holy Trinity Church, Salzburg

The Holy Trinity Church is a baroque church in Salzburg with a design based on the Sant’ Agnese Church in the Piazza Navona in Rome. It consists of the main church, a seminary and a house for priests.

The Holy Trinity Church, the seminary and house for priests was commissioned by Archbishop Johann Ernst von Thun. It was designed by architect Fischer von Erlach and was built between 1694 and1702. The notable feature in the church is the dome fresco by artist Johann Michael Rottmayr depicting the crowning of Virgin Mary and the Holy Trinity. The design of the church is somber compared to the pomp and splendor of other churches commissioned in Salzburg at the time.

The Holy Trinity Church also houses a museum displaying church treasures and other objects relating to church history. There are liturgical vessels and clothes including a Eucharistic Dove and a jewel studded monstrance created by the court goldsmith, Ferdinand Sigmund Amende in 1697. There are paintings and sculpture from the 15th to the 18th century. Loan exhibits from the archdiocesan estate are also displayed including the St. Rupert’s Crucifix from the 8th century and a winged altar with relics called the Grillinger Altar made in 1443. The museum also holds temporary exhibitions on themes of art and church history every year.
