In addition to the gorgeous artwork and the joyous confession of our Savior’s birth, there is a fascinating historical backdrop:
The beautiful artwork on these Christmas cards comes from the Imperial Cathedral of Speyer, Germany. These Nazarene-style frescos were painted in the cathedral’s interior walls in the mid-1800s by Johann von Schraudolph at the behest of King Ludwig I of Bavaria. The city of Speyer is significant in Reformation history; adherents of the Reformation were first called Protestants when they protested the Holy Roman Empire’s ban against Martin Luther and his teachings at an Imperial Diet in Speyer in 1529.
Be sure to take a look at our other liturgical cards too, which are offered individually, and add a few to your order. We offer a variety of fresco and stained glass notecards, an Easter card, and Baptism cards in both German and English.
