Glittering Cologne


Behind the High Altar of Cologne Cathedral is the object of medieval pilgrimage, the shrine of the Magi, unfortunately I couldn't get near it the retro-choir was "verboten", however what one could visit was the Cathedral treasury with wonderful gold and silver, but mainly gold, with a few spectacular vestments.

Cologne!! I wondered where you had been, Father. Did you see the tomb of St Albert? I seem to remember he is buried there?

No I didn't. I wanted to get to St Edith Steins's convent but didn't have time.

At this rate you'll be visiting Vadstena soon.
