Sankt Georg Church, Badbergen
Germany

The small town of Badbergen is situated in the north-west of Germany, in the state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) and lies in the middle of the beautiful Artland region. St Georg Evangelical Lutheran Church stands proudly in the town center. The church has a rare and very special Romanesque octagonal tower, built on a square base.

Inside the church are some characteristic objects. The large Romanesque baptismal font is immediately noticable and dates back to the first half of the 13th century. Its base has four crouching lions, carrying the large barrel shaped font. From 1651 untill 1866 the church was also used for Catholic baptisms. In those days the font was divided into two halfs, one for the Evangelists, the other for the Catholics. The cover of the font still reminds of those simultaneous baptisms.
Two large gothic brass floor candlesticks date back to the year 1450, and the beautiful pulpit was made in 1629.

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.
