Naumburger Cathedral and Treasure

The dom treasure shows Medieval and Renaissance treasures such as altars, panels, sacral sculptures, documents and manuscripts in the Romanesque vaults beneath the west enclosure in the Naumburg Cathedral. The Maria Magdalena by Lucas Cranach the Elder (around 1517/18) or the sculpture of St. John’s head on a platter from the 13th century is an extraordinary cultural treasure. It ranks as one of the earliest sculptural representations of the theme in Medieval Europe. The wooden Pietá from the early 14th century is another highpoint of the collection in the cathedral treasure vault with its well-preserved original colouring and vivid expressiveness. Visitors can also view manuscripts and valuable prints from the Naumburg Episcopal library, together with other liturgical treasures.
