Description

Architectural view of the pulpit in St. Stephen's Cathedral. Built in the late Gothic style, the pulpit stands next to a column in the nave. Four high-relief figures decorate the base of the pulpit. These figures represent the four Doctors of the Church. A curved staircase ascends towards the lectern via the right side.
