Serenity of the form, intimacy of the room: St Vitus quotes and transforms the architectural style of many other churches in the Rhineland.

@Z: That's what is was built for. A room for giving meaning and rhythm to life.

A wonderful sense of strength . . but the painting pulls the attention here.

@Ronnie 2¢: I like how its tones are corresponding to the floor.

Wonderful sense of depth, beautiful color and clarity. The painting just pulls you into the frame. Superb!

@Ted: Looks like a closed room, but it's completely open. The pillars are the effect.

@Curly: It was a bit painful, as it was really dark. And me, of course, without a tripod.
