City Church of Bremgarten - History


Archaeological investigations attest that the first phase before the actual founding of the city took place and the church was probably built in the 11th century by the Habsburgs.

In the area around the present city center, there were two 11th-century settlements. The first was around a medieval castle (today Bremgartner castle in the old town) and told Vilingen. The second Vorsiedlung was below the steep Moränensporns at the site of today's city, already Bremgarten was called, was south-west of the church on the left and right sides of the Reuss and was a ferry connected. The church was built on the edge of the settlement and originally belonged ecclesiastically to the neighboring village Eggenwil where the Habsburgs owned a farm. Since no donor grave was found, it was at the church probably an exempt proprietary church of the Habsburgs and had at that time not self-evident Taufrecht since its creation. The construction of this church thus began the ecclesiastical independence of the settlement of the Habsburg Eggenwil. The first written mention of the settlement Bremgarten was 1135-1140 when Count Albrecht II, the monastery Muri screen Vogt 1111 to 1140, his manor in Eggenwil and the settlement Bremgarten including the Church of Muri Abbey gave.

Bremgarten and Vilingen grew together in the 12th century into a larger settlement. Church and settlement remained until the early 15th century under Habsburg court rule on the farm Eggenwil. Representation of the lightning strike of 7 August 1580 by Johann Jakob Wick.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    Every library should try to be complete on something, if it were only the history of pinheads.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    The principle office of history I take to be this: to prevent virtuous actions from being forgotten, and that evil words and deeds should fear an infamous reputation with posterity.
    Tacitus (c. 55–117)
