In the course of secularization on April 20 in 1803 and the evacuation of about a year leater, the domilition of the church was decided on May 25 in 1804. The demolition was prevented, because the church was now in possession of the crown: they used the church as a depot, for which no compensation was available. King Max I. gave St. Salvator to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Munich on December 21 in 1806. But the Evangelical Lutheran community could not use the church, due to the fact that it was still used as storage room and coach house. With the start of construction of St. Matthew in the vicinity of Stachus, St. Salvator was again property of the Crown.

During the period of the so-called "Greece adventure", as Bavaria had hoped to established the Wittelsbach dynasty in Greece by Otto, King Ludwig I. agreed with the 30 Greeks in Munich to have a worship space. His election met St. Salvator, which he left the Orthodox Greeks to celebrate their religious services - decided by its majesty on September 22 and 30 in 1828. The church itself remained in the possession of the crown and remains the property of the Free State of Bavaria, which is the legal successor of the Wittelsbach possessions, too. After Leo von Klenze has rebuild the church for worship according to Orthodox rite, the church was consecrated on Greek Orthodox rite on December 18, 1829.

I took this photograph during the official opening last Saturday, after years of restoration.
