On Tuesday, city deacon Johannes zu Eltz showed the press the empty shrine, which is set into a wall in a side chapel next to the main altar.

The gold-plated monstrance (relic container) and the remains of Saint Hedwig, a baroness of Silesia in the early 13 Century, had been on display there on a permanent loan from the city of Görlitz since the autumn.
