Chur - Kathedrale St. Mariae Himmelfahrt

Chur - Kathedrale St. Mariae Himmelfahrt
A cathedral may have existed here already within the 5th century. The Kathedrale St. Mariae Himmelfahrt (= "Saint Mary of the Assumption") of today was erected 1150 - 1272, from east to west.

The crypt, under the risen choir, is probably the oldest part of the cathedral. The architectural concept is very similar to that of neighbouring St. Luzius, built the same time.

The epiphanie is part of a larger fresco painted by the "Waltensburger Meister" 1330/1340, who as well created the frescoes in the small church in Casti I had seen some days ago. I have the impression, that the artist who created the Gothic Magi-frescoe in Alvaschein, knew this work.
