On Monday, November 26, 2012 the tradition Club Stephansplatz in Vienna, a part of the archbishops residence near St. Stephens Cathedral, hosted the presentation of the first-ever book on the Constantinian history in German language written by the Constantinian knight Gregor Gatscher-Riedl. The evening was organised by the publishing house Neue Welt Verlag and the Royal Commission of Austria and Liechtenstein of the Constantinian Order. Editor Birol Kilic welcomed some 50 guests including Members of the Order as well as knights of the Order of the Golden Fleece, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and the Equestrian Order Holy Sepulcher, academicians, scholars, and notable experts like Christian Ortner, Director of the Austrian Museum of Military history and representants of the Viennese archdiocese and catholic life in Vienna. After a presentation about the Neue Welt Verlag by Birol Kilic the Chancellor of the Royal Commission of Austria and Liechtenstein, Max Count Deym, Knight of Justice, gave an overview of the Orders activities today and its mission in an everchanging church. Gregor Gatscher-Riedl, Knight of Merit and author of In Hoc Signo Vinces then spoke about the proud history of the Constantinian Order, spanning from the Battle at the Milvian Bridge to our times. In his eloquent speech the author especially emphasized on the Orders contribution to European and Italian history. The book presentation has been a vital sign of the Order s presence in Austria and in the field of scholary phaleristics.
