  • An unusual monument! Abraham a Santa Clara (Abraham a Sancta Clara) preacher and satirist, Augustinian monk, from the year 1677 the Court preacher in Vienna. His sermons and didactic writings were imbued with humour and prostonarodnym is totally alien to Scholasticism and mysticism, which confounded Catholic preachers of the time; they are relatively few and clericalism. With the astounding truth portrayed Hans Ulrich everyday relations with unwavering integrity and a stinging wit rebuked his time. Speeches and sermons it seethed with life, and he did not despise anything for effect: high pathos enters his flat tomfoolery, strange comparison, puns, unexpected antics he poured in a continuous stream. Under the liner he sought to hold a religious and moral ideas.

  • Just outside the gate to Burggarten behind Albertina is a small monument to Abraham a Sancta Clara, the important 17th-century Catholic clergyman and preacher. The stone statue was created in 1928 by Austrian sculptor and medalist Hans Schwathe. It depicts Abraham a Sancta Clara as a man of the cloth, with a bible in his left hand with his right hand extended. It appears as it were holding something, perhaps a cross. The statue stands upon a small pedestal with inscription. This is one of a handful of interesting monuments you can view at Burggarten.
