Item description for World Heritage: Hildescheim Cathedral and Its Treasures by Claudia Hohl, Michael Brandt, Karl Bernard Kruse & Thomas Scharf-Wrede...
This richly illustrated book provides insights into the cathedral's eventful 1200-year history, documenting and elucidating the architecture as well as the building's unique decorations. It spans the cathedral's history from the legend of the Hildesheim Rosebush during the early ninth century, to Bishop Bernward's monumental eleventh century creations, and, finally, to the destruction and reconstruction of the cathedral during the mid-twentieth century. This book is a striking reflection of the unbroken vitality of the ecclesiastical and artistic traditions on the cathedral hill in Hildesheim.
