Saint Thomas Church / Religious Edifices

Being the main protestant church in Strasbourg, the Saint Thomas Church (L’Eglise de Saint Thomas, as it is referred to in French) is also known as the Old Lady. The ground beneath the church is known as the worship place under the patronage of Thomas the Apostle since the sixth century. The church burned several times, in the very first years of the 20th century. The building was finally completed in the 16th century, being mostly a Gothic construction. In the same century, the church became part of the Lutheran belief, despite the Catholic status of France. The Saint Thomas Church reunites a collection of monuments, sculptures, stained glass, frescoes, as well as an organ made by the same famous Andreas Silberman, in 1741.
