"The #Cathedral of St. Lawrence in #Trogir (Katedrala Sv. Lovre) is a part of the #historic core of Trogir, which is included on #UNESCO#WorldHeritage list. The cathedral, called St. John among local citizens, is the most distinctive building, dominating the area. Built on foundations of the old #basilica which was destroyed after #Saracens attack #1123 , construction of this splendid structure started in 1193 and has been building for four #centuries until finally completed around #1500 . Since its construction lasted several centuries, it illustrates all the styles that succeeded one another in #Dalmatia . It is a #RomanCatholic triple-naved basilica constructed in #Romanesque -#Gothic style. Most of the work in the construction of the cathedral took place in the #13thcentury , being mostly completed in 1251. That means the building is mainly in Romanesque style, whilst the vault inside is gothic as it was built during the #15thcentury ."
Retrieval of the Holy Cross, Enghausen, Germany
built around 1500
A first church in the tiny village was mentioned in the year 808. The new building was constructed around 1500. The tower, nave and sacristy where built after 1699. It's unimposing from the outside and hidden between some farms. Around 1500, the community got an old cruxifix from the collegiate church in Moosburg. When the cross was restored in 2002 the analysis of the wood showed, that it was carved around the year 890 what makes it the oldest monumental cross of the world! The carolyngian style can be seen clearly, as Christ is not shown as king or suffering like he was since the romanesque.
Hl. Kreuzauffindung, Enghausen, Deutschland
Erbaut um 1500
*** Bereits im Jahr 808 wurde eine erste Kirche in dem winzigen Dorf erwähnt. Das heutige Gotteshaus wurde um 1500 erbaut, der Turm, das Langhaus und die Sakristei nach 1699. Die Kirche ist äußerlich unscheinbar und liegt zwischen Bauernhöfen versteckt. Um 1500 bekam die Gemeinde ein altes Kruzifix von der Stiftskirche Moosburg. Als dieses Kreuz 2002 restauriert wurde ergaben Holzanalysen, dass es um das Jahr 890 geschnitzt wurde. Das macht es zum ältesten Monumentalkreuz der Welt! Es zeigt klar den karolingischen Stil, da Christus weder als König noch als Leidender dargestellt ist, wie es erst in der Romanik üblich war. ***
