Austria: valley of vision

We are a small church in Mayrhofen, a village with a population of 4,000 and a popular tourist destination in the Ziller valley part of Austria. The religious history in this part of the Alps is rather rich. Much has happened during the last 500 years, since the time of the Reformation.

The century after the Reformation became known as the evangelical century of Austria. However, the Counter Reformation initiated by the Habsburg Monarchy and executed by the Jesuits began almost immediately after the Reformation. It fully bore its ‘fruits’ some 100 years later.
