Klosterneuberg Day Trip (more baubles but not quite as many bones)

Yesterday we took the bus up to Klosterneuberg, a nice little town on the outskirts of Vienna, and the home of an abbey dating from 1108 AD. It has a colorful history which I won’t repeat here, but you can read more about it on this page if you are interested.

We saw yet another treasury, and I must say, Austria continues to amaze in the area of quality bling. And, if this is what is on display, can you imagine what is stashed in various museum store rooms all over the country?

I am trying a new way of sharing my photos here, and discovered in the process that Picasa and WordPress do not play very well together. I am not entirely happy with the way this turned out, but anyway, click the photos to see larger versions.

  1. If you were participating in Holy Adoration, you’d much rather focus on a monstrance than a host….And I suppose there’s the thought of creating a suitable receptacle for the Body of Christ….It’s a very nice form of worship/prayer/meditation.
