When the Confraternity of Santa Maria della Pietà built a church on the Campo Santo Teutonico, which was enormous by the standards of the time, just 50 years after it was founded and consecrated it in 1500, it could not have known that this church would still occupy art historians 500 years later.

In fact, the church, which looks sober today, had a rich artistic decoration, which was examined by the former assistant of the Roman Institute of the Görres Society, Dr Teresa Lohr. On the occasion of the presentation of her book on the old and new art decoration of the church on 7 December in Rome, Gudrun Sailer from Vatican News (formerly Radio Vaticana) conducted an interview with the author and had the most important insights explained to her.
