Amazing images of historic Lutheran worship

Pastor Heath Curtis shared this at the Gottesdienst blog:

“My favorite art history series for Bible Class is Historische Bilder zum Evangelisch-Lutherischen Gottesdienst by Helmut Schatz. We all owe Fr. Kurt Hering and the saints of God at Trinity in Layton, UT for putting this up online. It’s simply amazing. If your German is not very good, don’t forget that you can just pop a paragraph of text into Google Translate and probably muddle through just fine. But again, it’s not so much the text as the pictures.”

These images are from the 16th and 17th centuries. Paintings, altars, vestments, woodcuts… all kinds of great stuff.
