The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Vienna:

The Greek Orthodox Community of the Holy Trinity was founded in 1787 as a result of the Patent of Tolerance decreed by Emperor Joseph II in 1781. While the congregation of St. George represented the subjects of the Ottoman Empire in Vienna, the members of the Holy Trinity were subjects of the Habsburg Monarchy. Until the early 19th century, there was no officially organized Greek school in Vienna, and young Greek children were privately educated by hired tutors who tutored the offspring of the wealthiest Greek families at home. However, as the demand for the establishment of a Greek school became intense and pressing, the Habsburg court only issued in 1804 a decree allowing the Community of Greek Austrian citizens of the Holy Trinity to establish a Greek school, which would have to be housed on the second floor of the house of the church of the Holy Trinity. The school was placed under public Austrian control, while the Community of the Holy Trinity supervised the finances and recommended the school’s teachers and textbooks. The school was divided into 4 classes where the students were taught – boys and girls separately – Religion, Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Thematography and Greek Grammar.
