The Trinitarian Church – Vianden


The Church of Trinitarians(1248) built in the
Gothic style with two parallel naves and the adjacent cloister.
It was built by Count Henry I in thanks to the Trinitarians
who arranged for the release of his father, Count Frederic II,
who had been captured during a crusade.

  1. Well, it is a beautiful church. But still, I have a problem with the name of the place, Vianden. It reminds me too much of the french word 'viande'. Which reminds me that it is lunchtime. Bon appetit!
    (got a silly mood day, today)

  3. I would wonder, if I was a god, why people felt I needed fancy-schmancy, gold-littered buildings to worship me in…I think I'd tell them to send me the gold instead!

    But this is sure one pretty building! 1248, heh? Heck, that's older than Cezar! 🙂

    I shall look it up the next time I get to Luxembourg!

    Wait, there can't be a next time as there's never been a first time. Oy vey!

  5. An other beautyful place, which could survive through times and centuries..I like the snow around, it gives a special mood to the sceneries.
    And yes, the word “vianden” sounds strange..What does it mean?..
    (PS thank you for this so lovely poem you left on my blog!)

  6. Okay, as you are curious ( so do I ) and Malyss and Rob asked about, I did some research about the name Vianden – Luxembourg.

    “The original name of Vianden was Viennensis or Vienna, probably derived from the Celtic vien, rock. The first historical reference to Vianden was in 698 when there is a record of a gift in the form of a vineyard in Monte Viennense made by Saint Irmina to the Abbey of Echternach” – from Wikipedia.

    Thanks so much for your all kind comments!I love all!

  9. I'm impressed by this great church, we had the Trinitarians even here, with the same purpose, and their church is still standing.

  12. Just caught up with your past three posts and thoroughly enjoyed them! This is a very impressive church, and I especially like the contrastic window and door trims. I also love the tall, thin spires of the Bourgogne cathedral.

  14. Good afternoon! Here it is still morning…

    Just a note on alligators…they are found in most Florida waters…and can be very dangerous, especially when they are feeding (which happens once a month)…generally, you want to avoid them because they are unpredictable. When people feed them, they begin to associate people with food which can lead to some unpleasant consequences!

    I swim only in the ocean and or a pool!
