Catholic Word of the Day: CATHEDRAL OF COLOGNE, 02-22-10
CatholicReference.net ^ | 02-22-10 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random):

CATHEDRAL OF COLOGNE

A famous shrine depository of the relics of the three Magi Kings in one of the finest examples of metalcraft of medieval times. Approved as authentic early in the ninth century, these relics were brought to Milan from Constantinople and then to Cologne in 1164. They were enthusiastically venerated in Germany throughout the Middle Ages. Mystery plays were organized to present the part played by the Magi in Christ's Nativity story. Their cult was widespread, and pilgrimages were started in the twelfth century and continue to this day. Caspar, Balthasar, and Melchior have been considered patrons of travelers.

The spires on St. Pat’s church in Elizabeth, NJ are modeled on those of Cologne. You can see them from the New Jersey turnpike (amidst the oil refineries).

*slaps fingers* BAD fingers! BAD fingers!

Actually, the OP is interesting. I am doing additional research on the Magi and these particular relics as we speak.

Beautiful and inspiring!

They are very distinctive spires. I don’t really care for the high-Gothic look - I grew up in churches in the inverted-Viking-ship style, old Presbyterian.

It’s a neat building, although I appreciate the history more than the architecture.
