The Chapel
www.foantje.com
Designed by Karl Langhans who is also known for The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. The church is built in 1796-1797. It has 3 floors and a little tower. The chapel is in a really bad state but these decayed floors are just perfect for photography. It took almost 2 years to get their but I'm very happy that I found the time to do it on time.

Picture 8 explained

Left side:

"Das ist je gewisslich. wahr und ein teuerwertes Wort, das Christus Jesus gekommen ist in die Welt, die Sünder selig machen" - as far as I can tell, "that is truly and a precious word, that Christ Jesus came into the world, to bless the sinners" (it is the text of a hymn by Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) - a text from the Lutheran bible (1.Timothy), and put to music a few times in the early 18th century.
Right side:

"Kommet her zu mir alle die ihr mühselig und beladen seid, ich will (?) euch erquicken." - "Come here to me, all you who are miserable and laden, I want to refresh you." from Matthew 11,28
