Notes from Salzburg: The Augsburg Holy Sepulchre

The international workshop began in Augsburg with a visit to a replica Holy Sepulchre built in the Church of St Anna.  This church has a number of connections to Jerusalem and a very interesting history. Built around 1321, it began as a Carmelite monastery and may have been founded as early as 1275 by the Bishop of Augsburg, Hartmann von Dillingen:
