With the pipes, architecture, and history, how can those present during services pay attention to the homilies and rites?
The ‘Young’ Church of St Peter, is an old and unusual church in Strasbourg, France.
The church itself was consecrated in 1053, and three of the remaining columns supporting the arched interior galleries in the church date from the 11th century.
The bulk of the church as it stands now was built between 1250-1320 and many of the frescoes you see are originals from the 14th century. In 1682, the church was divided into two sections, half for catholics and the other half for protestants, which seems quite forward thinking and civilized, doesn’t it! The pipe organ is a relative newbie, built-in 1780.
