Matthias Church (Erfurt)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Matthias Church was a parish church in the old town of Erfurt . It was on the northern corner of Johannesstrasse and Futterstrasse.


The Matthias Church was first mentioned in 1181 as a parish church in the surrounding area.

The small church collapsed around 1600, then it was rebuilt until 1609. In 1618 the parish of the Matthias Church became Protestant. During the Seven Years' War the church served as an arsenal and during the Napoleonic occupation (1806-1811) as a horse stable. In 1811 the French auctioned the church, which was demolished in 1818.
