The Wieskirche in Bavaria

Lecture no. 18 from the course: The World's Greatest Churches

The Wieskirche in Bavaria

Taught by Professor William R. Cook | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

This dazzling church in southern Germany embodies the joyful exuberance of the Rococo style. In studying its almost overwhelming decoration of florid ornamentation, lyrical paintings, and animated statuary, observe how the detailed symbolism of the artworks ingeniously expresses the church’s themes of repentance, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
