Kieritzsch Church

Short facts

Neukieritzsch is a station on the Luther Trail.

It was originally a Romanesque chancel tower church. The church was remodelled between 1697 - 1702. The free-standing pulpit altar and the patronage box date from this period. A late Gothic sacramental niche in the sacristy has also been preserved. On the west gallery, there is a Schlag & Söhne organ from 1907/08.

Gottlieb Schlag (1803 - 1889) studied with Gottlieb Schönburg in Schafstädt. He was the owner of the company Christian Gottlieb & Johann Karl Schlag in Schweidnitz from 1834 - 1869. The company Schlag & Söhne worked under this title from 1869 to 1923. Founded on the tradition of constructing mechanical organs, the 1907/08 organ was built for the church in Kieritzsch with cone valve chests and pneumatic tracker action. II/12. The rich-sounding tone specification conforms to the sound ideal of this era. In 2010/11 it was completely overhauled by Bochmann, Kohren-Sahlis.
