Mattias Ehrenfried was bishop of the city of Würzburg/Germany from 1924 to 1948. He had to lead the diocese during the Nazi-regime. He and his clergy were fairly outspoken against their methods and ideology. As early as 1933 priests from the diocese were arrested and not a few of them died in concentration camps. He was spared himself, because he was too popular with the people. Here is a series of large-format sepia photos from the day of his installation. Enjoy!
