Roman Catholic Ecclesiastical Art Collection
9400 Sopron, Orsolya tér 2.

The rich collection can be seen in the oratory of the former Ursuline convent on Ursula Square. The material helps us to get a more accurate picture of Sopron's Baroque art. The thematically arranged sacral objects were mainly fashioned in the Baroque style but there are older and 19th relics, too. The backbone of the exhibition is composed of authentic liturgical objects. Many of chalices, monstrances, reliquaries, crucifixes, ceremonial and baptizing pitchers and crosiers are real masterpieces of goldsmithing.

The sculptures and the intact parts of the altars are evidences of the former masters' high skills. One of the most valuable paintings is a picture by Martin Altamonte, which shows St. Dominic taking over a rosary. The Baroque vestments and robes bear evidence of the richness of emboridery techniques of previous centuries.
