Photographer's Note

St.Mariä Himmelfahrt in Cologne

The only big Baroque church in Cologne was built by Christoph Wamser from Aschaffenburg for the Jesuits and first completed in 1715. The inside of the church was decorated in Gothic style as appropriate to the Counterreformation. After the Jesuit order was dissolved in 1773, the church was used by the French from 1798 as a "Temple of Reason". After being destroyed in the war, the church was rebuilt by W. Schlombs and A. Georgen in its original forms with Baroque exterior and a three-storey high altar. The rebuilding process lasted until 1979. The former Jesuit College, which was connected to the church, is now used for the archiepiscopal trainee curates.
