You would be mistaken to think that all the Dombibliothek has to offer are historic treasures like the St Albans Psalter. Owing to the late director Jochen Bepler’s personal passion, the Dombibiothek possesses a collection of comics. This collection is ever-growing and consists, at this point, of about 700 comic books, 20 graphic novels and 50 books of technical literature.

It features classics like superheroes or Lucky Luke, but also focuses on how the medium deals with the church, be it literally or by meditating - through art - on its form of storytelling and symbolism.
