Der heilige Rupert (Saint Rupert of Salzburg)
At some point in the period 710-720 a bishop named Rupert left Worms and set foot on Salzburg soil. He began erecting a main church, a monastery and a convent ( Nonnberg Convent ) upon the ruins of the abandoned old Roman settlement of 'Juvavum', today the district of St. Peter. All of the constructions are still standing and viewable today, albeit in a modernised fashion. It was first in Rupert's times that the town on the Salzach was called 'Salzburg'; prior to this names such as 'Juvavum' or 'Salzburch' were more common. Consequently, Rupert is honoured as Salzburg's city patron every year with a town celebration on the 24th of September. On this day in 774 the first cathedral bishop, Virgil, moved Rupert's body to the cathedral. Where Rupert died is unknown, but he almost certainly passed away between 718 and 720.
