Worms Part 2: Inside St. Peter’s Cathedral

Last time I told you about the outside of the St. Peter’s Cathedral in Worms. While we wandered around a bit and came back to go inside, I’ll tell you about going inside today.

This is one of my favorite pictures from Worms of stained glass windows in the Niklauskapelle (St. Nicholas Chapel). I originally planned to crop the photo, until I looked in the top right corner. The colors are probably the result of the glare off another window, but it looks a bit like an angel, I think.

This is the Flügelaltar (winged altar), also in the St. Nicholas Chapel.

This is the Marienaltärchen (Altar of the Virgin Mary).

This is the view of the western choir. The figure above the windows is hl Laurentius (St. Lawrence).

This is the view in the nave, looking in the opposite direction of the western choir, toward the chancel.

There were many stone sculptures depicting scenes in the life of Jesus. This is Wurzel Jesse (The Tree of Jesse).

This is a statue of hl. Petrus (St. Peter).

I’m not sure what the title is of this sculpture, but I thought it was interesting, in kind of a disturbing way.

This is a model of the cathedral, prior to its partial destruction by the French.

Next time I’ll tell you about wandering around Worms both before and after going into the cathedral.
