Chapter Summary

A major sale of a closed medieval treasure is ensemble in Europe. The extensive tradition of medieval relics treasures in their contemporary vessels and ultimately on their destination itself from the monastery Marienstern in the Oberlausitz or the Halberstadt. The cathedral treasure is rare and must be designated as a special stroke of luck, as well as the preservation of relics and reliquaries in the treasuries of the Catholic churches often did not mean their untouched tradition. The figure of relics and reliquaries is often related to the visualization of the venerated objects outside the temporary presentation. The arrangement of relics and reliquaries followed a dramaturgy which combined with the self-image of the Saxon electors. In the group of holy virgins, the glass of Elizabeth wants to make programmatic attention to its relationship with the Saints, as Frederick. The original text of the chapter is in German.
