Storyline

Dresden's protestant Our Lady church is reputed Saxon architect Georg Behre's crowning achievement. Designing it was a nightmare, as it needed approval from the city, which feared the costs, and Saxony's elector (and elected Polish king) August the Strong, who wanted a worthy contribution to his baroque capital, requiring a monumental cupola, as in Catholic Italy. Rebuilding on a derelict church's site in the city center required 'sky-scraping', without concrete or steel. He came up with a wood and copper construction. After massive budget exceeding, he ended up replacing that with cheaper sandstone, unequaled, given the massive foundation possibly his initial plan. Written by KGF Vissers
