For no apparent reason, here are some of the many photos I took of Sankt Lorenz Kirche in Nuremberg two years ago.
As always with my photos, they are freely available, especially to educators.
Open sourcing forever!
Gerrit informs me that this cross is a work by Veit Stoss. I was thinking this might be by Stoss, the expression on the face, the drapery, but I wasn't sure. I was only sure that this was not by Riemenschneider or his circle.
I left out the many photos I took of Adam Kraft's spectacular sacrament house. I plan to do a separate post on Kraft eventually.
The bells of the Lorenzkirche
The people stopping and listening to the bells in this video was very much my experience in Nuremberg. Some of the people in this video are tourists, but most are locals. I remember enjoying a sandwich featuring the local wurst at an outdoor cafe near the Lorenzkirche on a pleasant Saturday evening when all the bells in the city began ringing at sunset announcing the beginning of the Christian Sabbath. I remember just about everyone stopping to listen.
