    Hello Tobias, a comment / rating / description you should already deposit, if you make the object a highlight.I'll try to catch up:
    A testimony in 1465 proves the existence of two houses of worship in the people Bacher sprengel of the parish association Kirchehrenbach for the 14th century, where the Moritzkirche appears as the original ecclesiastical center. Their spiritual care by the responsible pastor differs only slightly from that for a parish church.
    In the course of the 16th century, the importance of the St. Moritz church diminishes. Most of the services are now celebrated in St. Jakob zu Leutenbach, where obviously in 1502 a larger church was built.
    The collection of people Bach to an independent parish is on November 5, 1620th The church St. Jacob is raised to the parish church, St. Moritz is annexed as a side church.
    On August 8, 1886, the present Jakobuskirche was consecrated in the neo-gothic style by Friedrich Kratzer from Forchheim. The church tower with its four scarewatch towers, which now became the entrance, was taken over by the old, too small Gothic fortified church, for which it once housed the chancel. The gothic sacrament niche still bears witness to it today.
