Preacher’s Church Introduction
This is a church that was built in the 1200s, and it has church pews exactly like you’d expect to see in a church from that time. The side aisles have a library with nice lounge chairs, and there is a lazy dining area to take lunches on Sunday afternoons. The church lets immigrant groups use its church for worship, and evening concerts are held in the church on a frequent basis.
You can only see the outside of the church from one side, because one side of the church is integrated into the central library of the city. The church has an elegant, Gothic façade, and it is a very picturesque building and a unique church to photograph. The church was first described in 1231, and Dominican order monks ran the church. The monks put a real emphasis on spreading the gospel. The reformation of Zwingli meant that the monks had to go, and the Predigerchurch was turned into a Protestant church. They’re a little bit more tolerant nowadays, with a Catholic priest and joint masses celebrated with Buddhists and Muslims. The church is open throughout the day as a place of serenity and peace, and you can always talk to a counselor if you want to.
The church is open from 10 AM to 6 PM on Monday through Saturday, and it is open from 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday.
The Preacher’s Church is a great location to see what a real Dominican order monk church from the past looked like. This church went through a transformation when it became a Protestant church, and if you are a student of reformation history, then you can see firsthand the alterations and changes that the church went through. While you can always read about it in a book or guidebook, there is nothing like seeing it up-close firsthand and talking to a tour guide on-sight. You will learn a lot more by actually feeling, seeing, and sensing the church than by reading about in some book on church history.
If you’re a student or fan of church history, then the Preacher’s Church is the perfect place for you to brush up on your knowledge of that subject. This is a church that went through a transformation, but it is still standing today. You can see the effects of that change up-close and personal.
