Neumünster church was built in the 11th century to commemorate the martyr of Irish missionaries. Among them was St. Killian, whose death--if wikipedia can be believed--was reminiscent of John the Baptist's.
The skulls of the three saints are carried in a procession each year by theological students from the crypt to Würzburg Dom.
