Jerichow - Collegiate Church (Nave)
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.

Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!
But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.
And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.
