Product information "Crystal glass with pewter irminsul"

Beautiful crystal glass, clear, with pewter Irminsul.

The Irminsul (from irmin = mighty, divine, large and sul = pillar) or also Irmens pillar - was an old Saxon main sanctuary, and will have been a large oak or wooden pillar.

Its exact location is unknown, but it was probably near Eresburg near Obermarsberg (in Germany) - as the formulations in the Annales regni Francorum ("Franconian Imperial Annals") suggest in 772
Other possible locations in Germany include: a. the Externsteine ​​and the Velmerstot. The Irminsul was destroyed by the Franks at the instigation of Charlemagne in 772 during the Saxon Wars.
The Irminsul was said to symbolize the connection between heaven and earth. The monk Rudolf von Fulda, to whom we owe the only more detailed information on the Irminsul, writes about this in the Translatio s. Alexandri (chapter 3): "Truncum quoque ligni non parvae magnitudinis in altum erectum sub divo colebant, patria eum lingua Irminsul appellantes, quod Latine dicitur universalis columna, quasi sustinens omnia." - "They also worshiped a block of wood (or: log) of no small size that had been raised upwards (sc. The Saxons) under the open sky, which they called" Irminsul "in their mother tongue, which in Latin means" All -Column "means because it carries the universe in a way."
A (rest) version of a suspected "Irminsäule" is today in Hildesheim Cathedral in Germany. A reference to "the" Irminsul is unclear.
Incidentally, nearby are the towns of Irminseul / Irmenseul, Segeste, the Drachenberg and the Wormstal - which could even indicate the song of the Nibelungen.
Among other things, there is a memorial in Germany in Irmenseul in the Hildesheim district (approx. 9 kilometers from our company).
