Erfurter Dom (Erfurt Cathedral, also known as St Mary’s Cathedral) is the largest and oldest church building in Erfurt. The cathedral, where Martin Luther was ordained a priest, grew over the centuries from a simple 8th-century chapel into the stately Gothic pile of today. Standouts in its treasure-filled interior include the stained-glass windows; the ‘Wolfram’ (an 850-year-old bronze candelabrum in the shape of a man); the ‘Gloriosa’ (the world’s largest free-swinging medieval bell); a Romanesque stucco Madonna; Cranach’s The Mystic Marriage of St Catherine; and the intricately carved choir stalls. The steps buttressing the cathedral provide the perfect shooting location to capture the majesty of this cathedral. (Erfurt, Germany)
