Hildesheim III

More scenes from St. Mary's cathedral. At top is a statue of Bishop Bernward; next is a memorial to an early missionary to this region of Germany, Heiliger Ansgar, who worked in the area in the 820s and became bishop of Hamburg; and a general view of the interior of the church. The candelabra hanging from the ceiling is from the 11th century.
