  • This is a monument emblematic of Christian religious history. Here Luther was priest and celebrated mass here.

  • Wonderful church with a beautiful altar. Here can be beautiful during the tour to rest. Also, the entire building is nice to look at.

  • A beautiful church which can be overlooked among all the famous churches in Eastern Germany. Neat ironwork gates before the church entrance.  more »

  • The Church of St. George is a remarkable example of early Protestant architecture. Most interesting are the elaborate high medieval epitaphs from Ludowinger Dynasty but the church itself offers important insights. The austere interior reflects the emergent iconoclastic attitude of the time, but more important are the painted scenes from the Bible which adorn the gallery. With a powerful focus on individual agency, the paintings and descriptions are intended to help educate the laity, and represent efforts to increase literacy in the general population. These paintings would become a defining characteristic of protestant church architecture.
  • Today was the first Sunday concert in the Church of St. George. It was free. The two organ player had a little problem with the organ that they could not solve. They have set before the concert, by them around as they said played the problem around. For a big thumbs up.

  • My home community and Church. Here beautiful Christmas worship of mt great musical entertainment held for Christmas. In between, there's a liturgy, the scope of which is not so large as in a "normal" service. Since I no longer live in Eisenach, I can attend only every few years time.
