τὸ Α καὶ τὸ Ω – I am the alpha and the omega

Part of Saint Mark’s Chapel close to the Altenberger Dom, Germany.
The chapel was consecrated in 1145 or 1147 by Archbishop Arnold of Cologne.
Here the monastery held their services while the first Romanesque convent church was built (1125-1160).
Later it was for the sick and the tramontanes.
