Johannes Evangelista Cardinal Haller

Born in 1825 as the son of a peasant in South Tyrol. He became a doctor of theology and was ordained a priest in 1848. In 1890 he was made archbishop of Salzburg. He became cardinal priest with the title of S. Bartolomaei in Insula in 1895. He died in 1900.

I am kind of proud of these pictures because it is incredibly hard to find decent photographs of cardinals from that era.

You should be proud -- where exactly did you find these pictures?

Sorry, but as long as "the far sight" is online, I wont give away my sources. Some hints though: It always pay off to flip through some old magazines and books, thoroughly check the internet and visit diocesan archives.
