Dear Michael König, I am preparing an elaborate illustrated Google Earth Post on early Romanesque Architecture. This post is intended as an educational resource. May I use this photograph selected as an outstanding and image for that post? Of course, full credit will be given to your authorship. You can see this and previous posts of mine in under my "nickname" RWFG. Thank you! Regards Rolf Gross

Hallo Rolf,

so wie [hier] ( (dein Post "A History of Romanesque Architecture") ist die Quellenangabe okay. Dafür kannst Du das Foto gern benutzen.

Die Justinuskirche in Höchst wird i.d.R. nicht als romanisch, sondern als karolingisch/vorromanisch betrachtet und ist eines der besterhaltensten Bauwerke dieser Zeit.

Dear Rolf,

as referred in your keyhole post "A History of Romanesque Architecture", source information is fine. Feel free to use this image for your post if you wish.

St Justin's usally is not seen as a romanesque but pre-romanesque (carolingian) church, being one of the best-preserved structures from this era.

Schon sehr beeindruckend diese äußerlich eher unscheinbare Kirche und ehrfurcht gebietend das Alter. Amikumpels mit denen ich vorbei radelte, mußt ich 10x sagen, nix 1830....830. Like und Danke Bernd
