Summary

Deutsch: Rudolfsgrab. Liegefiguren Rudolfs IV. des Stifters und seiner Gemahlin Katharina von Böhmen. Darstellung der Universitätsprofessoren in den Nischen (Figuren seit ca. 1800 verschollen). Inschriften im Dom betreffend Rudolf d. Stifters.
English: The decipherment of the epitaph from before 1365 upon the cenotaph, or symbolic tomb, of Duke Rudolph IV of Austria ("the Founder") in the Stephansdom in Vienna. The translation of the secret writing into English is "This is the sepulcure of Rudolph, by the grace of God, Duke and Founder" and "Almighty God and great lord Jesus Christ, a shepherd." Rudolf was never, in fact, buried within the almost-solid stone structure, but in the Ducal Crypt elsewhere in the cathedral. The code used is the Alphabetum Kaldeorum, a cipher he probably invented.

Date: 1772
