Saint Michael’s Statue

The statue of St. Michael was erected in 1764, during the reign of Count Ferenc Zichy, who was the Bishop of the city. A strange story is connected to the statue, which you can read here.

The archangel pushes Lucifer into the depths and triumphantly raises his flaming sword towards the sky. There is a Latin inscription on the pedestal, which means “Who is like God”, is a translation of Michael’s Hebrew name (Mi-Cha-El). Unfortunately, we do not have the name of the artist who created the statue, but according to some sources, it may have belonged to the Italian Lorenzo Mattielli.
