Historic Trinity Architecture
In Picture and Detail

A series of booklets was published by Dr. David Eberhard for the 150th church anniversary in the year 2000. These booklets document and describe all the artifacts, symbols and furnishings of Historic Trinity Lutheran Church of Detroit, Michigan. They include full color pictures, and interpretation of each symbol. The booklets are 8 by 11 inches in size and are printed in full color

When he was head pastor of Historic Trinity, Rev. Dr. David Eberhard, started a renovation project of the church in 1985, and worked tirelessly to preserve and to refurbish the many artifacts of this beautiful cathedral-like church, that was built in 1930; he developed plans and raised the necessary funds to renovate the church building and its contents, to preserve their beauty and functionality for generations to come.

Photography and compiling for booklets 1 through 7 was done by Fred Hoeper; Booklet 8 was done by Werner Stuecher. Booklet 9 was also compiled by Dr. Eberhard.

The first eight booklets present detail images of the stained glass windows or various artifacts. The ninth book presents an concise overall narrative of the stained glass windows, artifacts, and art work and includes smaller images of most items.
