Hildesheim II

St. Mary's Church in Hildesheim dates from the 9th century. It was destroyed in 1945 and rebuilt after the war. At top is the approach to the entrance, then a shot of the side of the cathedral. Then are are the famous medieval Bishop Bernward's doors (1015), apparently made of a single casting. At bottom is the sarcophagus of St. Godehard. The cathedral is on the UNESCO world heritage site.
