Abstract

Nuremberg, Bavaria is often referred to as having been the 'unofficial capital' of the Holy Roman Empire, particularly because the Imperial Diet (Reichstag) and courts met at Nuremberg Castle. It is also called the "treasure chest of the German Empire" due to the fact that it houses some of Germany's important cultural artifacts such as regalia of the Holy Roman Empire and the city's own treasures, including the tabernacle and stained glass from the grand St. Lawrence Church. The brochure and portfolio in the Janice Zelazo Collection both refer to Nuremberg as the German Empire Schatzkästlein (treasure chest).
