The German painter Ludwig Thiersch (1825-1907), influenced by the Nazarene movement (form of German Christian art) applied the Nazarene technique in the ecclesiastical art, setting aside the post-Byzantine technique that was on a decline during that period.
Agia Irini on Aiolou Street is a representative of the Nazarene expression with murals (1884-88) by Thiersch¢s student Spyridon Xatzigiannopoulos.
This beautiful church is well known for its devout atmosphere during the laudations of the Christmas holidays.
