Domschatzkammer Essen and its collection

Domschatzkammer Essen
Source

The Essener Domschatz is one of the most important collections of ecclesiastical art in Germany. The dom treasure goes back to the treasure of the former Essen Abbey, which after the secularization of the abbey in 1803 became the property of the associated parish. The collection is unique in that it is still so complete. Furthermore, the Essen cathedral contains various works of art that are very important from an art-historical perspective, in particular from the Ottoman period. Of particular interest are four processional crosses from Ottoman times. Interesting is also the ceremonial sword of the abbesses of the Essen Abbey.
