Great piece. Thanks for posting the details about the church and Maas, which I find fascinating. Travel IS about story and exploration. Why else travel if not to learn?

That's a fascinating bit of history, PHeymont. I'm not sure I know of another church that was literally physically divided to serve two congregations. Anyone else know of any?

Actually, I do know of another, and it’s been featured on TravelGumbo! But that was a different sort of division. St. Helen’s Bishopsgate, in London, has two parallel naves; one was used by the lay parish congregation, and the other by the nuns of the adjoining convent. The division there was by a ceiling-high curtain running the length of the church. The original blog was for Where in the World #23, almost a year and a half ago! Here's the LINK

Their tents were constructed of hides (as were their clothes) and are...

The Heiliggeistkirche, to give it its German name, is the most imposing church in Heidelberg; it stands out above the Altstadt (Old City) section of the city so distinctively that I dared not include an exterior view among the clues. I make amends...
