St. Thomas Church in Leipzig



    The Lutheran and Note Cards - Erwin Weber - 1976


My pen and ink sketches of historic buildings in Leipzig, such as St. Thomas Church are published in The Lutheran, magazine of the Lutheran Church in America. See Illustrated Articles: "With Pen and Ink in Leipzig" Vol. 14, #18, October 20, 1976. The sketch appears on a Note Card. The inscription reads, "St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, where Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was a teacher and cantor for 27 years. His grave marker never seems to lack fresh flowers. This view of the church, founded in 1213, is from the east.
