„Church Castles“ is a Photodokumentation about fortified churches, the “Church Castles”. The focus of this documentation is on the architecture, fortification in primary, as well as of the church tower and nave (including the chorus), due to the score of preservation. Since 2006, the area of Baden-Württemberg in the given borderlines (by district) was covered, and in the years 2011-2012 those districts of the “neighborhood” Federal States of Bavaria, Hessian, Rheinland-Pfalz and Thuringia were covered, due to the importance of these areas within the frame of this project. Therefore, the project is proudly completed by the end of this year. “Church Castles – the Final conclusion” gives a summarizing overview about the covered area, the general distribution of the “Church Castles” and their stage of preservation today. Furthermore, the “Best of Preserved” will be highlighted in brief case, followed by the background of the “Reasons for the Reason” which gave an overview about the centuries, the “Church Castles” were the protectors for the rural people.
