Fulda: Saint Michael’s Church

About Saint Michael’s Church in Fulda:

Interior of St. Michael's Church in Fulda, GermanyThis a very simple pre-Romanesque church patterned after the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, which accounts for the rounded shape with the altar in the center..  It has kept its original look and is one of the oldest churches in Germany, dating back to the 9th century.

An important feature here are the relics of Saints Simplicius, Faustinius and Beatrix.  Two brothers, Simplicius and Faustinus,  were arrested during the reign of the Emperor Diocletian and cruelly tortured on account of their Christian faith and then beheaded; their bodies were thrown into the Tiber. Their sister Beatrix had the bodies drawn out of the water and buried, and was herself killed for this act.
