Holy Trinity Church

Category: Jobaháza

The church, which was consecrated in 1869, was built on the site of the old, wooden-towered church, presumably by extending it. The top of the tower, which rises from the Romanticist-style facade, is adorned with a double cross. The exceptionally beautiful Baroque high altar probably came to Jobaháza from a monastic church. There are four gilded statues of saints – Peter and Paul the Apostles and two unknown saints – between the columns of the three-level altar structure dating from around 1750. There are two carved angels holding crowns raised in glory, with statues of St Barbara and St Agatha beside them. Small statues of St Jude and St Joseph stand on either side of the altar. The Rococo pulpit was made in the second half of the 18th century. In the churchyard, there is a statue of the Virgin Mary holding Jesus in her arms, erected in 1870 on a pillar, as well as a stone cross made in 1938 “to commemorate the Eucharistic Holy Year”. (Béla Bartók’s later collecting work began in June 1906 at Jobaháza, where he recorded 40 folk songs.)
