"Leaning Tower" is the colloquial name for the church of St. Thomae in Soest, founded in the 12th century in the course of the construction of the new archbishop's Palatinate. The official name Alt St. Thomae of this church is explained by the distinction from the nearby former monastery church Neu St. Thomae. The leaning spire of Alt St. Thomae occupies a special and eccentric place in the silhouette of the Soest church towers. With the extension of the Romanesque building to the early Gothic hall church in the 13th century, Alt St. Thomae is one of the oldest Gothic church buildings in Germany. Alt St. Thomae is the only church in Soest in the immediate vicinity of the city wall and is also the only one among the Soest churches that still has a church garden.

The Protestant parish church of St Simon and Judas Thaddäus is a listed church building in Bad Sassendorf, a municipality in the district of Soest in North Rhine-Westphalia. The parish founded in 1973 includes the church described here and the parish church of St. Pantaleon in Lohne. The parish history of both churches was largely similar, as there were dependencies between the mother church in Lohne and the branch church in Bad Sassendorf. The buildings, however, differ because of the different times of origin.

It was built around 1200 in the immunity area of the St. Patrokli Monastery, but according to the latest state of research, probably not by Soest merchants, as was often assumed due to the St. Nicholas Patrozinium and the design.
