The lake: legends & Myths
St. Domitian and the birth of Millstatt
The remains of a castle are on Hoch-Gosch, opposite Millstatt. Here is a he >Days passed, the son never came back. One day the message came that the ship was floating in the lake without people. The dismayed father, who loved the son very much, vowed that if he found the body, he would build a church on that spot. Then he let the lake flow into the Lieser.
When the water had sunk a good bit, the drowned man was found on the backrest, where Millstatt is today. The good father also kept his vow and became a Christian. At that time there were a lot of idols around the lake. He had them thrown into the lake, but he called the place where he had the church built, Mille Statuae, which is a thousand statues.
The town of Millstatt developed from this over time. A service is held in honor of Domitian in early February. A priest is said not to have kept this prayer. As a punishment, the church sank one meter deep into the earth, only the altar remained in place. If you want to go to church today, you have to go down a few steps, but the altar is a little higher again. This duke is still revered as a saint, his bones are in a glass coffin in a specially built church. He is said to have been the Duke of Carinthia, but the story tells nothing about him.
