Tips

  • Stefan Rüger

    Neither the construction time nor the client are known. It could have been a separate church of a noble or spiritual landlord. Typical Romanesque geometric proportions and stylistic features, such as the ratio of the height of the eaves to the width of the building, point to old age. The structure with its massive masonry (wall thickness approx. 1.2 m to 1.3 m) in pure field stone construction (no stone, no corner cuboid) has high-lying small round-arched window openings in the south wall, which have unusually compact pointed arches on the outside, which is a sign of a Remodeling applies. All walls consist of plastered double-shell quarry stone masonry made of greywacke in ample mortar bedding. At least the south side is still in its original condition when it was built.The building is attributed to the transition from pre-Romanesque to Romanesque, from the 10th to the 12th century. A simple hall building (hall church) with a flat ceiling or originally with an open, visible roof beam, as it was in simple village churches until the 11th century. It is assumed that it is far older than 900 years.
