St Boniface

As I may have mentioned, the area in and around Fulda was founded by St. Boniface and his followers in the early-mid 700's. Many reminders of him remain. This is the Dome Church where his remains are.

One of the many small sub-chapels within the church. This one is dedicated to Mary.

The altar below which the relics of St. Boniface are buried. I cannot describe the feeling being so close to a saint. A good friend of my wife and I passed away recently, so I lit a candle in her memory here.

All along the sides of the main chapel are beautiful works of art like this.

One of the figures in a large sculpture within the church.
