Nütschau Priory

Nütschau, Germany

Nütschau Priory is a Benedictine house located in the former Nütschau manor house. The manor was built in 1577-1579 by Heinrich Rantzau, this community originated after World War II as a refuge for displaced persons, particularly Catholics from the former German territories.

The church acquired the site in 1951 and at the request of Hermann Wilhelm Berning, the Bishop of Osnabrück, it was developed by and staffed from Gerleve Abbey. St. Ansgar's House opened in 1951. In 1955 the community was raised to the status of a priory under Gerleve, and in 1975 Nütschau became an independent monastery, which now includes a training house and a youth house.

Ein mystischer Ort. Wer sich selbst finden möchte, ist hier gut aufgehoben. Ruhe, gute Gespräche oder auch Schweigen.

Die Erfahrungen die dort stattfinden sind für jeden Menschen individuell und persönlich.... nicht so einfach zuzuordnen. Für mich ist es der spirituelle Ort der Ruhe und der absoluten inneren Einkehrung. Ich komme schon viele Jahre dort hin und fühle mich sehr aufgehoben. Es werden dort viele unterschiedliche Angebote um Körper Geist und Seele angeboten. Für mich ein Ort der Stille und der absoluten Ruhe. Ich bin dort aufgehoben und super entspannt.

Baths of Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla were the second largest Roman public baths, or thermae, in Rome. It was built between AD 212 and 217, during the reigns of Septimius Severus and Caracalla. They would have had to install over 2,000t of material every day for six years in order to complete it in this time. 

The baths remained in use until the 6th century when the complex was taken by the Ostrogoths during the Gothic War, at which time the hydraulic installations were destroyed. The bath was free and open to the public. The earthquake of 847 destroyed much of the building, along with many other Roman structures.

The building was heated by a hypocaust, a system of burning coal and wood underneath the ground to heat water provided by a dedicated aqueduct. It was in use up to the 19th century. The Aqua Antoniniana aqueduct, a branch of the earlier Aqua Marcia, by Caracalla was specifically built to serve the baths. It was most likely reconstructed by Garbrecht and Manderscheid to its current place.

In the 19th and early 20th century, the design of the baths was used as the inspiration for several modern structures, including St George's Hall in Liverpool and the original Pennsylvania Station in New York City. At the 1960 Summer Olympics, the venue hosted the gymnastics events.
