And don't forget about the second Turkish invasion of our churches - coffee, sofas and ottoman's in the nave:

Latte church with sofas:
|The barbarians are not at the gates now;|
they are inside the temple and teaching the students.

promoted by WELS because they are much more confessional now.
The Ottoman Muslim forces failed to take Vienna in 1529, which brought their invasion of Europe to a halt. However, they controlled part of Hungary, so the country was divided between royal and Ottoman Hungary.
The 1529 attempt was foiled by unusually wet European weather, which made pulling the heavy siege equipment extremely difficult. The light artillery used against Vienna did little damage. The Muslims lost much of their equipment and many of their prisoners as they attempted to withdraw.
This was the last attempt to take Vienna. The Muslim forces failed to protect their own lines. Polish General Sobieski saw his chance and drove his cavalry straight into the Muslim camp. The Austrian defenders poured out of the city to join the fun. In the panicked withdrawl the Muslims left behind all their artillery, their tents, their jewels, and their bags of coffee beans.
The tradition of the Viennese coffee house developed from that victory. To this day, the best coffee beans are Arabica.
