English summary: The unique collection of the Cathedral and Diocese Museum at Mainz is exhibited in its entirety in the historical rooms of the Cathedral Chapter - a unique occurrence in Germany! Most of the exhibits come from churches of the Diocese and were eventually given to the museum, which was founded in 1925. Here, the presentation in a museum creates a symbiosis with the original environment of the rooms in an impressive fashion: In the Medieval arched vaults in the basement, e.g., we find stone sculptures from Late Antiquity to Gothic times, but also the famous rood screen figures by the Master from Naumburg. In the upper cloister of the cathedral, we find the calvary scene of Hans Backofen, and paintings from the workshop of Lucas Cranach. The treasury is housed in the former Nicolaus Chapel from the early 15th century: ostensories, chalices, and precious gold jewellery sparkle in the light here. For the first time, an illustrated guidebook describes ALL of the 200 exhibits of the museum. The individual sections of the museum are also introduced in short texts, as well as the overall history of the museum, and thus make this volume a treasure trove of information. German description: Farbig illustrierter Fuehrer zu einer einzigartigen kirchlichen Sammlungo Erstmalig prasentiert ' alle 200 Exponate des Dom- und Diozesanmuseumso Bedeutende Kunstwerke in historischer UmgebungDie einzigartige Sammlung des Dom- und Diozesanmuseums Mainz wird - einmalig in Deutschland - vollstandig in den historischen Raumen des Domkapitels gezeigt. Beinahe alle Exponate stammen aus Kirchen des Bistums und gelangten schliesslich in die Obhut des 1925 gegruendeten Museums. Und hier verschmelzen museale Prasentation und originare Ausstattung auf eindrucksvolle Weise: So werden in den mittelalterlichen Gewolbehallen im Untergeschoss neben Steinskulpturen von Spatantike bis Hochgotik auch die beruehmten Lettnerfiguren des Naumburger Meisters gezeigt. Im oberen Domkreuzgang finden sich etwa die Kreuzigungsgruppe von Hans Backofen und Gemalde aus der Werkstatt des Lucas Cranach. In der ehemaligen Nikolauskapelle aus dem fruehen 15. Jh. ist die Schatzkammer untergebracht: Monstranzen, Kelche und Kleinodien der Goldschmiedekunst entfalten hier ihren Glanz. Erstmals stellt ein farbig illustrierter Fuehrer alle 200 Exponate des Museums vor. Einfuehrende Texte zu den einzelnen Abteilungen des Museums und seiner Geschichte machen den Band zu einer rundum informativen Lektuere.
