    ST. MICHAELS CHURCH

    St. Michaels church, Munich

    Built between 1583 and 1597, this Jesuit church – the first in northern Europe – was intended to symbolize the local victory of Catholicism over Lutherism. Hubert Gerhard's large bronze statue between the two entrances shows the Archangel Michael fighting for the Faith and killing Evil in the shape of a satyr. The interior, with a barrel vault second only in size to St Peter's in Rome, is decorated in elegant white stucco.

    This brilliant church dedicated to the jesuit order was built in the fashion of the roman church Il Gesu. It contains a crypt of members of the Wittelsbach dynasty.

    B&W accentuates the creamy domes

    The splendid domed interior of St. Michael's Church on Neuhauserstrasse. Surprisingly, contrary to the hustle and bustle outside, the churches were virtually deserted. Good news for photographers :)
