Filialkirche Aschau

Feldkirchen bei Mattighofen, Oberösterreich, Österreich
Church of St Bartholomew
Two kilometres northwest of Feldkirchen, the walled branch church and sacristan's house are located on a hill in the village of Aschau.
Aschau is mentioned in a document as early as 1130 as ''Asca''. Pastor Anton Obermüller (1874 - 1922) writes in his "Chronicle of the Parish of Feldkirchen" that in earlier times a large market was held in Aschau.
In 1660, two oratories were added to the south and north of the church and in 1732 the tower, which had been declared dilapidated, was demolished. The east-facing church was once Gothic and was later baroqueised. The exterior of the nave is divided by simple pilasters and has three stepped buttresses on the choir. The rectangular windows are completed with round arches at the top and bottom and the west tower with its beautiful double onion dome was built in 1736 and extends over three storeys. The vestibule is attached to the south side, while the two-storey oratories with the sacristy are located on the north and south sides. 1736 saw the addition of the tower and the western bay in the nave to the single-nave church building. This year also saw the addition of the frescoes and stucco, which are believed to be the work of Johann Michael Vierthaler.
