Seen here is the breathtaking ceiling fresco at Seitenstetten Abbey in Lower Austria. While the monastery was first founded in 1112, the fresco was not painted until 1735 by artist Paul Troger. The piece is entitled, The Harmony between Religion and Science, and can be found in the abbey’s Marble Hall.
