St Marien: Hermann Joseph Window

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 11 May 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

This magnificent window in the transept of St Marien, Bad Godesberg, is dedicated to Hermann Joseph von Steinfeld (ca 1150 - 1241 or 1252), mystic, poet, pastor. The left scene depicts the 'apple wonder' where young Hermann handed an apple to a baby Jesus statue which accepted this donation. Hermann Joseph is still a popular saint in the Rhineland.

In comparison to recent posts, this is a window composed of much warmer colors. Very ornate in design and you've captured the detail beautifully.

@Steven: Thanks to soft afternoon light. But the ornaments of this have much warmer tones than comparable windows have.

With every photo you post of these magnificent windows, I appreciate the
incredible job you must work on every photo in your search for perfection.
I have never seen it better anywhere, you are the very best.

@Phil David Morris 2011: Many thanks, Phil! However, for the next evolutionary step I will have to change my perspective and locate myself on the galleries.
