Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: There are seven processional banners in the possession of the Vienna Votive Church. They
were dedicated to the church by various persons/groups of persons. This diploma thesis is
dedicated to the research of Viennese embroidery studios and artists at the end of the 19th
century, who were involved in the creation of the flags, as well as to an extensive
investigation of the persons/groups of persons, who dedicated them to the Votive Church.
Based on the inventory and condition report, a concept for conservation and restoration is
developed, which is subsequently implemented for one flag. The focus is primarily on
conservation measures. In addition, an adequate storage concept for the flags is developed
to support their long-term preservation.


Keywords: processional banners, Votive Church, needle painting, stitched support methods, storage
