Zerbe village church

The Zerbe village church is the Protestant church in Zorien (Saxony-Anhalt).


In the western part of the village is the church of Zorien, a plastered hall building, over whose western front the church tower towers as a roof turret. The tower carries an open octagonal lantern. In the side walls of the nave there are arched windows, but the east wall has no windows. The building dates from 1743 when the manor owner Werner Siegfried von Plotho donated a new building to replace the old church. Some parts of the previous building were used in the new church. The interior has a flat ceiling. A gallery is attached to the western wall , which, together with the box-shaped stalls, dates from the time it was built. The altar plate is likely to come from the first Zerbian church because it is of Romanesque origin. The small organ with one manual and nine stops was built in 1823. In 1869 Elisabeth von Plotho donated the chalice-shaped baptismal font made of marble . To the side of the altar are two Renaissance tombstones with colored portraits of Oto and Catarina von Plato (Plotho), who died in 1605 and 1611 respectively.
