It was in the year 1955 when 426 school girls from Basel, who were all called Ursula, welcomed a cargo ship from Rotterdam carrying the golden bust from Saint Ursula. It contained her cranium – a relic to pay tribute to the "legend of Saint Ursula and her 11'000 martyrs". Until today her bones are venerated. Dominik Wessely follows this cult and investigates why people are still moved by such faith and what complex discussions it provokes.
