  • The Jesuits came to Heidelberg in 1622, but since the middle of the century the city came under the leadership of the Protestant elector Karl Ludwig, the Jesuits had to travel, and only came finally back in 1686. A few years after were Heidelberg destroyed during the nine years ' war, and the city would then be rebuilt. The foundation stone for the Church was laid in april 1712 but the construction of the Church met various problems and went periodically to a complete halt. First, in 1759 the church stood completed. The Tower, however, is a later addition, built 1868-1872. When the society of Jesus was lifted temporarily in 1773 (until 1814) the church stood empty and was at the end of the 1700-century used as a lazaret and magazine. In 1809 the Church was then consecrated as a Catholic parish church, which it has been since then. The Church's exterior is typically Baroque style. When you see it coming you immediately think of the Chiesa del Gesu in Rome, Inside the Church, which is a three-aisled Hall church, very simple furnishings, and the memories of a Protestant Chapel most immediately. Significantly, they are incredibly beautiful and decorative caps on the many pillars pilasters that sits high up and lights up with the colours gold and green filters. On the main altar is seen "Ordinance of the Holy Spirit and St. Peter's Pentecost sermon", a picture from 1871 by Andreas Müller. And side altar shots are the ships of Müller. Originally, however, the Church has not had a single decoration, the sources mention several side altars and artworks. To the left of the entrance door to the Church is found the entrance to a small museum with four – five spaces. Here you will find the Church's Treasury with monstrances, chalices, robes and other ecclesiastical effects as well as some paintings. A very friendly lady told me a bit about the history of the Church and showed off the city's oldest church bell, which was hung up in a tripod with two other bells. I could guess which one of the bells was the oldest, waited there the prize, that I could get permission to strike a blow at the Bell with a mallet. It was now not so hard to exclude the two bells which could not be the eldest, but church bells now have to pluck with metal and not of wood but of course it would scream too much. Are you interested in churches and ecclesiastical art, Jesuitenkirche (Church) must be high up on the list of places to be visited in Heidelberg.
