A Wing And A Prayer

Christianity is the largest religion in Germany, with approximately 60M members (representing about 75% of the population), although less than 10% participate in Sunday church services. Of those Christians, Protestants make up about 30%, while Roman Catholics make up 31% - most of whom are based in Bavaria. Roman Catholicism was the sole established religion in the 15th century, but the reformation change that and in 1517, Martin Luther challenged the Catholic Church with corruption and thus establish the Protestant church. Now, you can see traces of Christianity all over Munich, including this decorative statue in Haidhausen.
