A baroque Benedictine abbey church,
which is now used as a Catholic parish church.
I made a lot of photos, this is part 1 of my series.
Here are just two images
After the local Church had passed into Adersleben 1216 the Burchardikloster in Halberstadt, encouraged the local monks , the application of a Cistercian nunnery , which was dedicated to Saint Nicholas. The confirmation of the monastery took place in 1267 by the Bishop of Halberstadt Volrad .
1276 the local church was incorporated into the monastery and later transferred the whole place and the farmers living there to the monastery by purchase . The village Adersleben was therefore referred to as a deserted village in 1445 .
The monastery was meant for the care worthy of frail virgins.
St. Nicholas Church
During the Peasants ' War of 1525 and the Thirty Years War the monastery was looted and partially destroyed. The monastery was still maintained. However, it experienced a period of decline, which ended in 1809 with the complete abolition of the decisions of the Kingdom of Westphalia . Since then, the St. Nicholas monastery church, dedicated is a Catholic parish church . It was built about 1751 . Of note are the baroque high altar from 1794 and two side altars .
Today the Church of St. Nicholas is part of the Catholic parish of St. Burchard based in Halberstadt .
The actual monastery building came into the possession of individuals and were bought back in 1866 by the Prussian state who established a state domain here . From the historic buildings remains are preserved today hardly .
