Mainz. Sank-Peter Church
11-MAY-2013

Mainz. Sank-Peter Church

All the glory of rococo appears to be gathered in St. Peter’s, shining in bright gold – as fresh as on its first day. With good reason: In 1989, the elegant church with its twin onion towers was returned to the parish, like new, after more than ten years of restoration. The church was founded by Archbishop Frederick of Lorraine in 944. In 1748, the court architect, Johann Valentin Thomann, constructed the new building on the site of the demolished parish church of St. Mary. The original late baroque elegance has been emulated in the historic restoration. The richly adorned white-gold wooden pulpit from Johann Förster’s workshop and some luxuriantly decorated altars, including the rood altar by the court sculptor Hans Backoffen from the 16th century
