The bishop's festive garments

© Copyright by Vereinigte Domstifter

Description:

Without bishop no consecration, without consecration no cathedral.

A medieval bishop exercised an important office, not only when there was a cathedral to consecrate. We invite the children to slip into the role of a bishop themselves. In doing so, they will learn about the duties of a bishop and the significance of the individual ritual garments. Dressed up like a bishop and his court, they go on an exciting search for traces of the Merseburg bishops.

Dressed up like a bishop and his court, they will go on an exciting search for traces of the Merseburg bishops. Inspired by the splendour of the bishop's precious clothing, we will then get creative ourselves and design a magnificent mitre, decorated with dazzling gemstones and borders.
Parallel to the children's project, there will be a special guided tour for adults on the returned cathedral treasure from Dresden: The Cathedral Treasure Returns. Dresden treasures back in Merseburg
We recommend that you register in good time via our visitor service.
