The Nazarene School at Blessed Sacrament in Wichita

You'll remember that I posted about visiting the Church of the Blessed Sacrament one Friday afternoon after some new/old Stations of the Cross from our renovated Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception were installed.The pastor updated the status of the stations on his blog, giving some history, here.

The originals were painted in the 1840's for the Church of St. Johann Nepomuk in Vienna, Austria and you may find them highlighted in this pamphlet and a complete gallery of them here. The artist was Joseph F├╝hrich, a member of the Nazarene School or Movement of painting.

Just filling in some background.
