Germany: Worms Cathedral

Last Tuesday I got two postcards from Germany.

One of them shows the Worms Cathedral. The Worms Cathedral was built in the 12th and 13th century. It is an important Romanesque building and the smallest of the three Rhenish Imperial Cathedrals. The cathedral is associated with some great events of the European history including the Concordat of Worms which ended the Investiture controversy in 1122 and the Diet of Worms in 1521, during which Martin Luther was condemned as a heretic. Until its extinction in 1800 it was the seat of the Catholic Prince-Bishopric of Worms.
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.

With a matching stamp:
Millinary of the Consecration of the Worms Cathedral (issued 07-06-2018)
with a special postmark showing the ground floor of the Worms Cathedral

Thank You very much Marcel for sending me the card in an envelope!
