Rothenburg

The choice between the more “shopping”-“modern”-flavoured Nuremburg and the “medieval”-“romantic”-flavoured Rothenburg was a simple choice for me.

A lot of mini-sparks here and there during the walk and explanations especially during the first part by Dr. Philip. When I looked at the artwork, woodworks and sculptures in St. Jakob’s Church I thought about how the people of that time tried to make the message “understandable” for the majority who were illiterate. And then there was the comment on the master piece “The altar of the Holy blood” where there was attempts in “contextualizing” the story of Jesus and making the connection to where the people of Rothenburg lived (e.g. the picture of Jesus entrying Jerusalem was “translated” to entering Rothenburg gate)
