GERMANY ~ Magnifriedhof Cemetery - Braunschweig ~

... Postcard showing the “Blue Wonder” at this historical cemetery... blue carpets of flowers between old gravestones... it  forms a green tranquil oasis on the edge of the city center...many famous Braunschweig personalities are buried here... postcard and stamp lead us back to time of "Enlightenment"... the stamp and special postmark is about the 300th birthday of Immanuel Kant... and on the card you can see the grave of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, a German philosopher, dramatist, publicist and art critic, and also a representative of the "Enlightenment" era... Thanks Dustin!【ツ】

The Magnifriedhof consists of two cemeteries, the Cathedral and St. Magni Cemetery, which are located on the same site. The cemeteries are no longer given different names, but are instead referred to by the people of Braunschweig as Magnifriedhof. In the Magnifriedhof there are gravestones from different stylistic periods, such as classicism and late romanticism.

The early German Enlightenment is seen as a reform movement that broke free from traditional ties without falling into anti-Christian and extremist positions, on the basis of secular natural law and new social ethics.
