St. Paul's Church, Frankfurt am Main

St Paul's Church (German: Paulskirche) is a Protestant church in Paulsplatz, Frankfurt am Main with important political symbolism in Germany. It is a parish of the Protestant Church in Hesse and Nassau, a United member church of the Evangelical Church in Germany. It is notable for being the seat of the 1848 Frankfurt Parliament, the first publicly and freely-elected German legislative body. Although now a United Protestant church, it was started as a Lutheran church in 1789—coincidentally the same year as the French Revolution.
