Raitenau was considered well-read, and a follower of Niccolò Machiavelli's ideas. He considered himself a genuine Renaissance prince of an absolutist state. He won fame not only as an art collector but also as a builder who significantly promoted the spread of the Baroque architecture north of the Alps. When Salzburg Cathedral was devastated by a fire on the night of 11 December 1598, he had plans set up for a lavish reconstruction by the Venetian architect Vincenzo Scamozzi. The new cathedral was, however, erected under Raitenau's successor.
