St. James Church in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

I had been to this city thrice. This also means I did also see St. James Church three times. My first visit was sometimes in 2008, the second one was in January 2011 and was again followed last February 5, 2011.

St. James Church is a historical Lutheran church in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

The church was built between 1311-1484. Its east chancel was completed in 1322, nave built from 1373-1436, and west choir, which bridges the street, from 1453-1471. The church was consecrated in 1485 by the Bishop of Würzburg. In 1525 the peasant leader Florian Geyer read aloud the articles of the revolting peasants from its west chancel.
