Joseph Chapel - Lorettoberg - Freiburg - Black Forest

The Loretto Chapel are more or less three small chapels under one roof: Loretto chapel the biggest chapel in the centre - dedicated to Mary, Annen Chapel in the east and the later built Joseph Chapel in the west of the building.

The citizens of Freiburg vowed in the fightings of the war of 1644, between France and Bavaria at the end of the thirty years' war, to built a chapel in case of a victory, to replace the Joseph Chapel, which had been destroyed during the fights. The Loretto Chapel was finally built in 1657.

Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque Architecture can be seen in the three chapels.

The pano shows the interior of the Joseph Chapel. If you like to see the outside of the three chapels have a look at Carsten T. Rees pano: Loretto Chapel

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.
