Just down from the arch is Ludwigskirche. The church serves as the university chapel and a Roman Catholic church as well. I learned that it also is the second largest art fresco in the world. Pretty impressive actually.
It’s a large church. And there wasn’t a whole lot of light when I was there. The picture above is a bit deceiving. As I went around the sides of the church, it was pretty dark and I don’t have many good pictures of the beautiful art. Here’s one that I thought came out ok, but still worth posting.
The altar is beautiful, in it’s only way – a simple altar with beauty surrounding it.
And lastly, I really liked the baptismal font. There’s a ton of theology with the imagery. There is the font in the center of what could almost be described as a tomb and an image of a dove over the font. The imagery is powerful and expresses the theology of baptism so well – baptism is a sort of dying to self to be made new – all guided by the Holy Spirit. Well done Ludwigskirche.
