  • Oulisse dares always heretical to ask where the founders of the Cathedral the "tipper"coins had the with which the construction was financed. The serfs, the to the that wealth contributed, are buried like always somewhere? Impressed the tombs in the Cathedral with the illustrations of the lived off the handrails with modern art on both sides of the stairs up to the altar have him: small arch bronze figures - on the way to paradise? Unfortunately not quite described or mentioned on the edge on the orientation table which you find your way in the building. The benefactors are of great beauty, as well more figural representations in the building. The cloister is unadorned, the Treasury shows the art of Lucas Cranach the elder d. Ä and his master workshop. Everything else is described by those who can read in the work of the left, whether he wanted to carve Gothic or barockig. A massive Church complex but big impression and is worth a long visit!

  • In the small historic town of Naumburg is a prominent Cathedral, which is considered to be one of the main gems of the entire German architecture. If almost all the major medieval churches of Germany is a "pure" Gothic, the Naumburg Cathedral laid still in the 12nd century (before the era of Gothic), but rather refers to the Roman (Byzantine) style: with round towers, wide space naves of dark marble. The main value of the Cathedral-gorgeous color sculptures, created by French architects a century later: the statue of Christ on the cross, just below which is the entrance to the altar (photo left), as well as perfectly executed figures of medieval rulers of Thuringia. Female figure (photo in the Middle, to the right of the male) art by many experts consider the best sculpture in the world 13-th century.
