Parish Church Maria Moos

Kirchberg in Carinthia (from Oberwietingberg)

Kirchberg is a locality in the municipality of Klein St. Paul in the district of Sankt Veit an der Glan in Carinthia. The locality has 35 inhabitants (as of 1 January 2020[1]). Until 1973, a municipal boundary ran through the village.

Location

The village is located in the extreme north of the municipality of Klein Sankt Paul, on the territory of the cadastral municipality of Kirchberg, on the left side of the Görtschitztal, on the western slopes of the Saualpe. The following farm names are listed in the village: Lorber (No. 2), Ritzmann (No. 4), Pacher/Pungerter (No. 6), Stieber (No. 8) and Geyer (No. 16)

History

The area was already settled in Roman times, as spolia on the present church prove. Between 1167 and 1181 Chirchperg is mentioned in documents. The church was fortified against the Turks in the 15th century. This church, built over a spring, was a popular pilgrimage destination until the time of Josef II.

A tax municipality border ran through the village: the church and the southern part of the village were in the tax municipality of Kirchberg and thus belonged to the tax district of Wieting in the first half of the 19th century. The northern part of the village, on the other hand, was in the tax municipality of Hinterberg and belonged to the tax district of Althofen. When the local municipalities were formed in the course of the reforms after the revolution of 1848/49, the southern part of the village became part of the municipality of Wieting, the northern part of the village became part of the municipality of Lölling. In the course of a municipal structure reform, the cadastral municipality boundary was changed, so that the entire village has been part of the Kirchberg cadastral municipality since then. At the same time, the village was annexed to the municipality of Klein Sankt Paul.
