Abstract

St. Georg is one of the three Romanesque churches on the island of Reichenau at Lake Constance, Germany, built between the 9th and 11th century. UNESCO inscribed the monastic island of Reichenau in the World Heritage List in 2000. St. Georg has meticulously restored wall paintings which are exposed to a very humid indoor environment. Anthropogenic risks and preventive mitigation measures to reduce the environmental stress were identified within a research project. One aspect of research was the impact of salt in dust collected from time to time from different areas in the nave and the crypt. The paper identifies possible sources and analyses the harmfulness in relation to the indoor climate by salt mixture simulation with ECOS/RUNSALT. The data were compared with drilling samples of walls and passive dust sampling data. An experimental analysis by dynamic vapour sorption (DVS) of dust samples is planned in near future.
