On the side in the shape of a plaque:
MARIA INNUA COELI TUAM OPEM POLSANTIBUS APERI ET OMNES ADVERSANTES INIMICI MACHINAS EXCLUDE AD AERIS HUIUS SONUM QUOD GLORIOSO TUO NOMINI DEDICAVIT PARIS EX COM. LODRONI ARCHIEPISPOPUS ET PRINCIPS SALISBURGENSIS. ANNO REPARTAE SALUTIS MDCXXVIII.
(Blessed Mary, gateway to Heaven, give your assistance to your supplicants and keep all attacks of the detestable enemy at bay with the ringing of this metal that was consecrated in your name by Paris of Lodron, Archbishop and Prince of Salzburg in the year of salvation 1628.)
This bell was once installed in the north tower, now it hangs in the south tower (on the Kapitelplatz side) of the cathedral. It rings on Sundays and every Thursday, after the ringing to the evening Angelus, in commemoration of Jesus’ mortal agony.
This bell still possesses its original wooden yoke from 1628.
