Historical Context
 

The holy sepulcher in the church of Saint Cyriac in Gernrode is located in the southern aisle of the nave. It was created circa 1060-1080, perhaps extended and completed no later than circa 1130. This scene on the northern side of the sepulcher depicts the meeting between Jesus and Mary Magdalene (the "Noli(te) me tangere" scene). Over this scene is the (presently decapitated) figure of Christ as God the father with the book of life and his hand raised in blessing.
