With the Reformation, Barbara Hutzl had-Ronge for a long time, and Zwingli was her, in a way, to modern. To in concrete terms. The author of books such as "the magic of Zurich" or "the magic of lake Constance" felt more in early Christianity at home.
When she began in 2006, with tours of the city, turned this according to legendary Abbesses, headless Holy or mysterious deer with glowing Antlers.
But in the run-up to the reformation anniversary, she was approached repeatedly, you should do something to Zwingli. "Certainly not," was her first reaction. "As a stray Catholic socialized an Austrian, I felt really called to it." More dutiful than curious, she wanted to read a bit into the topic.
"Hardly anyone knows the"
"Me, blown away has. There was not only exciting story , but also fantastic stories!" She was glad that she finally learned, after living over thirty years in Zurich, what is learned to secure each Zürcher child in the school. But as you said in your environment about it: "Hardly anyone knows that."
Because there are not only a thrilling story, but also fantastic stories.Barbara Hutzl-Ronge
Barbara Hutzl is a great story-teller. Equipped with in-depth historical Knowledge and Conscience. And talking to yourself in enthusiasm and / or writes. "First, I wanted to two, a maximum of three guided tours of the city on the topic of Zwingli, and perhaps one of the refugees." But then I realized that these fields were too far. "I had to unbundle the issues."
in Short: a by the photographer Martina Issler beautifully illustrated, nearly 400-page book with eleven well-described walks through 500 years of the city's history is. It's about the legendary sausage to eat, or to the so far hardly discussed the Huguenots, or Waldenses, to Locarner refugees, which took place in Zurich, your luck, or a matter of faith, how women conquered the pulpits.
Simplified card: Even on this short walk, there is much to tell.
An example: On the trail of the vanished monastery of Oetenbach, we will have to learn the mystic Elsbeth of Oye know. We see how the Reformation divided the Convention, to be witnesses of a marriage proposal, the young Heinrich Bullinger, addressed to a former Oetenbacher nun, whose "Speak and Behave" for you, revenue.
We make a detour to the St. Verena convent, whose chapel we've often walked past, without realizing that it was a former house of God. We land finally, in the case of Bullinger's – the former nun had said Yes – and celebrate with them for Christmas. Not without the strict successor of Zwingli caught, that he of his own children, the beautiful history, had to survive because of, the Saint Nicholas the Reformation. Although they wanted to but with all the saints, devotion to strict break.
The walks are by the way very well and with a profit on the spot to understand. The only Problem: It muscle soreness is threatened by the Wearing of the leader.
