We had a beautiful time in Dresden, where are many Reformation connections there, as well as lots of other historical and cultural sites. You see what it means that Dresden was the capital of the influential Kingdom of Saxony for hundreds of years. From my own research, I love seeing the things that have to do with the dukes of the 16th century: Georg, Heinrich, Moritz and August. Georg hated the Reformation, his brother Heinrich introduced the Reformation, Moritz (I would argue) helped save the Reformation, and August institutionalized it. That's about 80 years of Dresden's religious history in a nutshell.Dresden Kreuzkirche
This is a photo taken from the ground floor of the Kreuzkirche (Church of the Cross), which has burned down five times over the centuries, often due to war. The last time, they decided not to rebuild it in its previously ornate baroque style. So it stays a very stark white/gray as a statement against violence. Looking up from where I was standing are some puti adorning the balcony. Maybe a hundred feet higher at the top of the ceiling is that simple cross.
