Sankt Maria Lyskirchen Painted Vaulted Ceiling
Cioffi, Paul L., 1928-2004
Within the medieval city wall of Cologne stand twelve Romanesque churches. Despite the devastation suffered during World War II, all of the churches have been restored. They are Gross Sankt Martin, Sankt Andreas, Sankt Aposteln, Sankt Cäcilien, Sankt Georg, Sankt Gereon, Sankt Kunibert, Sankt Maria im Kapitol, Sankt Maria Lyskirchen, Sankt Pantaleon, Sankt Severin and Sankt Ursula. Sankt Maria Lyskirchen, the smallest of the twelve, and the only one to have been built as a parish church (early 13th C.), has ceiling paintings and murals that date from 1220/30-1270. These depict cycles representing stories of the Old and New Testament.
