ecclesiastical scatological scopophilical

Puzzled by the necessity to post warnings against rampant ecclesiastics by the good burghers of Freiburg, I was directed to look again at das Freiburger Munster

Good grief! What were they thinking? (What were they doing?) But don’t be deterred from risking a visit to see for yourself. It is indeed a miracle the Munster survived… If you missed it, see my previous panoramic view in which I remind you that the Swiss historian Jacob Burckhardt once said that the church’s 116-meter tower “will forever remain the most beautiful spire on earth”.

Avert your eyes indeed!

Maybe it’s to hold fresh flowers?
