Fresco Notecards

The beautiful artwork on our fresco notecards 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.

Crucifixion

Inside text, on left side: a verse from
“Christ Jesus Lay in Death’s Strong Bands”

Here the true Paschal Lamb we see,
Whom God so freely gave us.
He died on the accursed tree –
So strong His love! – to save us.
See, His blood now marks our door.
Faith points to it; death passes o’er.
And Satan cannot harm us.
Alleluia!

Teach us to work with all our might;
Beat back the devil’s threatening spite;
Turn all to good that seems most ill;
Help us our calling to fulfill.
