Worms and Tiny Birds


Worms – which has nothing to do with the invertrebrate – is a city in Germany that held significant power during the medieval times. Together with Speyer and Mainz (also known as SCHUM-cities), it was one of the cornerstones of Jewish culture and education. Its importance to Christianity is proven by the existence of one of the three so-called Rhenish Imperial Cathedrals (the other two are in Speyer and Mainz…not a coincidence). Imperial Cathedrals are cathedrals linked to the Holy Roman Empire, all three of the Rhenish ones are built (mostly) in the Romanesque style.
