Church of Peace Ludwigshafen, Rhine, Palatine, Germany
The Church of Peace (Friedenskirche) and the Max Slevogt Room. Max Slevogt painted in Spring 1932 the Altar Piece 'Golgatha' for the Peace of Church as a Fresko on a surface of 100 qm. He finished the Fresco in the sight of his death. The Fresco showed the human Helplessness as a 'distorted' Artwork. You can see the Picture on one of the Walls of the Max Slevogt Room. The Fresco was detroyed during the bombings of the Second World War.
The Room is used as Conference Room of the Curch.
The Church was built 1931/32 and rebuilt between 1954 and 1956 after being damaged during the bombings of the Second World War by the Architect Professor Ernst Zinsser. Since 1992 the Church of Peace is a Protected Monument.
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.
