The Museum am Dom houses objects from 1,700 years of diocesan history. The most outstanding piece is the Constantinian ceiling painting that was found under the crossing of the Trier Cathedral. It is worldwide the only surviving example of a false ceiling from this period. Furthermore, can be found in our collection, the original portal figures of Our Lady, the earliest dated work by sculptor Nicklaus Gerhaert of Leiden, Carolingian fresco, a variety of paintings, liturgical vessels and early Christian grave inscriptions. This historical evidence we present in dialogue with contemporary art to illustrate the visitor that the sacred art today is still an important component of the visual arts.
