Long Description:

Deutsch

Die ursprüngliche Stadtkirche wurde 1518 durch eine verheerende Feuerbrunst zerstört. Der Wiederaufbau der spätgotischen Kirche wurde 20 Jahre Später abgeschlossen. 1539 setzte sich, auf verlangen des Landesherrn, der evangelische Glauben in Zörbig durch. Das Innere der Kirche veränderte sich und erlitt im dreißigjährigen Krieg (1618-1648) erhebliche Zerstörung. Für deren Beseitigung sorgte auch der Herzog August von Sachsen-Merseburg-Zörbig und schenkte der Kirche einen Altar, Taufstein und Kanzel.

The original town church was destroyed in 1518 by a devastating conflagration. The reconstruction of the late Gothic church was completed 20 years later. 1539 sat, on demand of the sovereign, the Protestant faith through in Zoerbig. The interior of the church changed and suffered during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) considerable destruction. For their elimination also attended the Duke Augustus of Saxe-Merseburg-Zoerbig and gave the church an altar, baptismal font and pulpit.
