In the atrium of the Pomeranian State Museum, visitors will in future be able to view an unusual liturgical object: the Naugard communion chalice. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the North made the valuable exhibit available to the museum as a permanent loan. Bishop Tilman Jeremias presented the chalice on Monday.
It is a medieval goldsmith's work from the early 14th century. In the turmoil after the end of the war, the chalice made its way from Naugard/Nowogard in Eastern Pomerania in 1945, first to Grimmen and later to the consistory of the newly formed Pomeranian Evangelical Church in Greifswald. Since then, the church had announced that it had been in a safe with the associated paten. According to the museum, in addition to the great age of the chalice, the scenic depictions on its base are exceptional.
