St. Maurizius Pfarrkirche Zermatt

Gebaut 1913 nach den Pl?nen von Architekt Adolf Gaudy aus Rorschach

Den Hochaltar schuf ein Altarbauer dem Goms ums Jahr 1750. Dargestellt sind hier die Heiligen Maurizius, Josep, und Ignatius, sowie die Bisch?fe Niklaus (links) und Theodul (rechts). Das Stifterwappen erinnert an den Bischof Johann-Josef Blatter (1684-1752).

Die Seitenalt?re entstanden um das Jahr 1736:
Den "Herz-Jesu-Altar", auf der linken Seite, baute Johann Rits aus Selkingen;
der "Mutter-Gottes-Altar" auf der rechten Seite, stammt ebenfalls von einem Walliser Meister, dessen Name aber unbekannt ist.

Anlslich der Renovation der ganzen Kirche im Jahr 1980 schuf Theo Imboden aus Tch den Zelebrationsaltar, den Ambo und die Leuchten.
Vom Florentiner Paolo Parente stammen das Deckegem?lde, die in liturgischen Farben abgebildeten Symbole der vier Evangelisten im Chor sowie die Verk?ndigungsszenne und die biblischen Gestalten im Chorbogen. Das Deckengem?lde versetzt die Arche Noah in unsere Zeit.

Die mechanische Orgel baute J. F?glister aus Grimisuat im Jahr 1981. Sie verf?gt ?ber 25 Register verteilt auf zwei Manuale und das Pedal.

German-English translation:

St. Mauritius Parish Church of Zermatt

Built in 1913 according to the plans of architect Adolf Gaudy from Rorschach

The High Altar created by an altar builder from Goms around 1750. Shown here are the Saints Mauritius, Josep, and Ignatius, and the Bishops Nicholas (left) and Theodule (right). The crests commemorate the founding Bishop, Johann-Josef Blatter (1684 - 1752).

The Side Altars originated around the year 1736:
The "Heart of Jesus" altar, on the left, built by Johann Rits from Selkingen; the "Mother of God" altar on the right, also from a Valais master whose name is unknown.

During renovations of the whole Church in 1980 Theo Imboden from the Taesch created the celebratory altar, the ambience and the lights. The Florentine Paolo Parente created the ceiling paintings in the choir that depict in liturgical colors the symbols of the four evangelists, as well as the biblical scenes and figures in the choir arch. The ceiling painting depicts Noah's Ark in our times.

The Mechanical Organ built J. F?glister from Grimisuat in 1981. It has 25 stops on two manuals and the foot pedal.
