Fortified churches normally describe buildings that are surrounded by features designed  to repulse enemies – e.g. battlements, brattices or arrow slits – or are surrounded by defensive structures.
However, this description only partly applies to the fortified church in Pöllwitz. St Nicholas’s Fortified Church in Pöllwitz was first mentioned in a document written in Latin. This was a letter of indulgence from an archbishop and ten other bishops in Avignon (France) for St Nicholas’s Parish Church in “Bedelwitz” (Pöllwitz).
