Archaeology at the church of St Remigius: Two films

The medieval tower of St Remigius’ Church contains one of the most important finds in the history of the Kaiserpfalz in recent years: the well-preserved remains of a baptismal font from the 6th/7th century. In the 11th century, this site was also used as a cemete ground.

The Kaiserpfalz Research Centre has produced two short films on this subject in collaboration with medieval archaeologist Sebastian Ristow, who specialises in Christianisation.

The films explain the archaeological findings in a particularly vivid way: reconstruction views show what the church and the baptistery may have originally looked like around 1400 years ago. Information on full-body baptism, which was customary at the time, is also illustrated.

Both films can also be downloaded from the information boards at St Remigius Church using QR codes.
