I’ve posted a piece over at TeamRCIA that might be of interest to readers of Pray Tell. It’s about two (very different) baptismal fonts, both in Speyer Cathedral, in Germany.
Now you are probably wondering: Two? To solve the mystery, you can read the post (and see the pictures) here.
[Hint: I almost entitled this post “Fonts ancient and modern” but out of deference to S. Anita Sauffer’s classic monograph (On Baptismal Fonts: Ancient and Modern, Alcuin/GROW Liturgical Study 29-30, Grove Books Ltd., 1994) I changed my title to “Old and New.”]
