I though you have to wait until Christmas Day to unwrap your pressies, but it appears to be different around here.
The Johanniskirche, looking brand-spanking new, despite being extremely chronologically gifted.
Consecrated in 910 (which makes it the oldest church in Mainz) and was in fact the cathedral church of the Archbishopric of Mainz until the Dom (just across the road) was completed in 975.
For the next 800 years, it went through the usual “add a bit, knock a bit down” phase to match the architectural style and financial resources of the day until the French turned up in 1792 and decided that it would make an excellent warehouse.
So that was that for 30 odd years, until it was reinstated as a church and promptly gifted (probably surplus to requirements, if the truth were known) to the Protestant congregation.
Who did the same “add a bit, knock a bit down” thing as the Catholics had been doing, culminating in a complete makeover in Art Nouveau style in 1906.
Just in time to be completely burned out in the air raid of 1942.
Survived the wrecker’s ball and was reconstructed (given the post war fiscal constraints) in a late Carolingian style.
Maybe not quite so chronologically gifted, after all….
