The Bible in the St.-Paulus-Dom (in German)
Digital exhibition by the Faculty of Catholic Theology at Münster University and the St.-Paulus-Dom on the occasion of the 1700th anniversary of Jewish life in Germany
Jewish life in Germany has existed for at least 1700 years, as attested by documents, and a Christian place of worship in Münster for 1200 years. Both traditions have shaped people for centuries and are also reflected in artistic testimonies. Christianity is inconceivable without the Hebrew Bible, the fundamental scripture of the Jews, known to Christians as the Old Testament. The appreciation of Jewish origins can be found in the Christian works of art in the cathedral just as much as the rejection of the Jewish religion that lasted for centuries - today felt as painful and overcome. The project "The Bible in St Paul's Cathedral" enables unknown and surprising views of old familiar works of art.
