Jozsef Szent Kalazanci Roman Catholic Church

Carei, judetul Satu Mare

Address1 Decembrie 1918


Certified since 1333, the Roman Catholic parish in town, also had the church. The church changes throughout its evolution: in the 1550s it enters in the possession of the reformed, from wich it was taken in 1723 by Count Karolyi Sandor; between years 1769-1779 Count Karolyi Antal builds a new church in honor of St. Kalazanci Szent József. Because of the earthquake of 1834, the church was rebuilt and receives the current form between 1857-1860, after the plans of the architect Ybl Miklos.

The church was rebuilt in Baroque style by Antal Karolyi (1732-1791) in gratitude for the birth of his son, Joseph. With minor interruptions, the construction occurred during 1769-1791. The one who had made the church was the family's architect, Joseph Bitthauser.

The church is one of the most valuable churche in area, in the eighteenth century. The structure of this place of worship is ordered as it follows: the vessel of rectangular plan with rounded corners, received a narrow sanctuary, closed with a semicircular apse and a hall of the same length in front of the entry door. On the sides of the sanctuary there were built two sacristy, both having an oratory in the upper part; the choir is supported by pillars located in the west hall and it is provided with an arched rail; the access is done through two separate scales annexed to the tower; the interior wall of the church, divided by pillars, is designed with niches of variable sizes, containing icons made by the Viennese master Johann Ignatz Cymbal.

The altars are made in Baroque style, and from left to right, they are dedicated to St. Andrew of Avellino, St. Joseph, St. Anthony of Padua, St. John Nepomuk, Holy Trinity and Holy Virgin with the three Saints Kings of Hungary. Typical for the Hungarian nobles of that period, the clothing of the saints is one of the special elements of the painting.

The outside of the church is represented by the typical baroque architectural elements: the main facade is decorated with statues, the cornices and the pilasters are prominent. The facade continues on the upper part with the tower, with convex sides. Traces of the restoration made by Ybl Miklos after the earthquake of 1834 are visible at the higher limit of the tower and the side of the facades.
