The tunic is believed to be the garment used by Jesus Christ prior to his crucifixion, quoted in the Gospel of St. John as "seamless." The tunic was last on display in 2006 attracting 700,000 visitors, according to the Trier city website. The display was active two other times in 1959 and 1933. In 1512, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I removed the robe from the high altar, where it had been hidden for centuries. Pilgrims flooded the city wanting to see the robe, and there was the first official public showing.
