Jerichow - Collegiate Church (Nave)
Germany

The Collegiate Church of Jerichow was built in 1150 for the Order of the  Premonstratensians. It was created on the eastern edge of the German Empire at that time, near the Elbe River and is one of the first brick buildings in Northern Europe. Models for them come from northern Italy, and the church was probably built with the help of construction workers from there.

Today's very cool impression is the result of the restoration in 1850 by F. von Quast, though originally the walls were not plastered as well for the most part.

The crypt in the east was built in the course of an extension of the church as early as 1200, so the choir room was set higher. On the underside of the archs of the crossing in the choir remnants of original paint are are still visible.

The panorama shots were taken handheld

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.
