Name on artwork[edit]

Check the artwork, is that "St. Wolfgang and the devil" or "St. Augustine and the devil" ? If we see the image description, it says that it is the former one. St. Wolfgang is definitely not known as St. Augustine too right?Olentz

I noticed the same thing. Maybe it should be removed from this page.`Padness 10:13, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

The painting is a very well known one one by Michael Pacher from the Chruch in St. Wolfgang in Upper Austria. It is decidedly St. Wolfgang. The reference to St. Augustine shuld be removed. 70.249.193.162 (talk) 17:38, 4 August 2008 (UTC)Pastor R.

I agree concur:

Story of deal with devil[edit]

What kind of deal did St. Wolfgang make with the devil? Does anyone have a story? Blue Rasberry 15:57, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

I cannot recall the story now. But Saint Wolfgang tricked the devil into building the church for him.119.92.93.84 (talk) 22:31, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
