Hildesheim St. Michael - Eastern Choir

St. Michael (= Michaelis Church) is an outstanding example of the architecture of the period around 1000 in Germany, the Ottonian or early Romanesque architecture. Therefore the church is already since 1985 a Unesco World Heritage Site. The church was consecrated in 1033.

Another famous piece is the painted wooden Romanesque ceiling, whose theme is the "root of Jesse": the genealogy of Jesus. It is 200 years younger, from the beginning of the 13th century.

In the east choir stands since 2010 the "Bernward Column" from the cathedral in Hildesheim, which is currently being restored. The column is also from the beginning of the 11 century. It has a height 3.80 m, was cast as one piece of bronze and depicts scenes from the life of Jesus.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
