Installed as bishop of the old and prestigious diocese of Paderborn/Germany in 1920, Caspar Klein became the first archbishop of this city, when Pius XI raised the see to an archdiocese in 1930. The diocese of Paderborn was founded in 799 by Leo III. During the middle ages worldly territory was acquired and the bishops became prince-bishops. After the dissolution of the Empire, the diocese was reinstated in 1821.
Caspar Klein is one of the few German bishops from the 20th century which I have seen in a cappa with ermine tails. And what is this thing covering his rochet? Or is it the rochet? It shows the coat of arms of an archbishop (I got twenty bucks that say it's Klein's). It is kind of weird, isn't it?
