Scuola dell'Angelo Custode

A Lutheran Guardian Angel

Scuola dell' Angelo Custode

This handsome salmon-coloured scuola of the Guardian Angel only last a hundred years as a confraternity: founded in 1713 and suppressed a century later, its building was purchased by a German merchant to be used as a church for the Protestants once they were no longer confined to the Fondaco dei Tedeschi.

Inside the (now Evangelical Lutheran) church, there are several paintings transferred from the older building: Sebastiano Ricci's The Madonna in Glory with the Archangel Michael (with a fine sea monster), a Christ by Titian, and a Portrait of Martin Luther by the studio of Lucas Cranach.
