Adjacent to the Cathedral is the large Lubrański Academy building, once home to Bishop Jan Lubrański’s institute of higher learning and today the Museum of the Archdiocese. The space has been well renovated and houses plenty of treasures worth a gander. The first floor is devoted to ever-changing temporary exhibits, and the next two floors are filled with all manner of religious art and relics. Paintings like a 17th-century depiction of the sacrifice of Abraham and recreations of the Florence fresco “Annunciation” are impressive, as are the numerous statues of the Madonna, Jesus and a smattering of saints. There are many preserved robes from Poznan’s long line-up of bishops, one dating back to 1480, as well as a spread of all their heavily-bejeweled rings and the sword of Saint Peter. You can even see the large black handles taken from the doors of the Cathedral.
