History

Kirchanschöring earlier belonged to the prince-bishopric Salzburg. In 788, Kirchanschöring was first mentioned in a document as a possession of the archbishop Arno. In that time, it was called Anschering. This name probably goes back to the name Ansheri or Anskar, relating to a person who settled there. In the course of the centuries, the name changed into Anschering and later, after the construction of the church in the 14th century, Kirchanschöring.
