14-Nothelven Church Anger

Anger

Patronage of St. Florian and St. Patritz

The branch and pilgrimage church of the 14 Holy Helpers in Anger is the most important pilgrimage church in the upper Feistritz valley. The building history of the church interior represents the highlights of the pilgrimage to this place of worship. Gothic portals are reminiscent of the oldest part of the church, which is dated to have been built around 1517 and in this respect is in line with Hofkirchen and Blaindorf. The choice of the Patronzinium makes the worries and needs of the population at that time clear - the 14 Nothelfer offer the greatest possible number of spiritual helpers in all situations of life. The nave was at least partially rebuilt on the old foundations in 1633. The striking bell tower followed in 1683 according to plans by Jakob Schmerlaib and has its almost equally old counterpart in the bell tower of the nearby parish church of Koglhof. Finally, the construction of the altar area followed in the form of the three-conch solution (cloverleaf ground plan) between 1714 and 1719 under the direction of the Pöllauer master builder Remigius Horner. There are two bells in the bell tower, the larger one from 1687, cast by Adam Rostauscher in Graz, the smaller bell cast by Grassmayr in Innsbruck in 2007. The extensive catalog of saints in this church shows the ranks of the patron saints, which goes far beyond the already large circle of the 14 Holy Helpers. The early baroque organ on the gallery was created by Andreas Schwarz in 1710 and was in the Anger parish church until 1740. Today's movement was built into the magnificent case by Thomas Jann in 1998.
