Schärding - Stadtpfarrkirche St. Georg
Upper Austria

In beinahe 700 Jahren, die seit der Errichtung der Stadtpfarrkirche St. Georg in Schärding vergangen sind, hat sich einiges getan:

An die Zeit des ersten Kirchenbaues um 1307 erinnert die Torhalle, die man durch das Turmportal betritt.

1703 wurde die Pfarrkirche St. Georg im Zuge des Spanischen Erbfolgekrieges schwer beschädigt und 1720 - 1726 nach Plänen des Passauer Domkapitelmeisters Jakob Pawagner in reifem Barock aufgebaut.

Unter dem Münchner Johann Michael Fischer wurde der Bau schließlich fertiggestellt.

Durch die französische Beschießung 1809 brannte sie aus und wurde 1814 wieder hergestellt.

1975-1979 wurden das Kircheninnere und die Altäre völlig restauriert und in barockem Stil sehr gehoben.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
