Moosbrugger, Caspar Andreas
Moosbrugger was active as consultant architect for several monasteries in the area. He remodelled (1684–1719) the Romanesque former Benedictine Abbey Church at Muri, Switzerland, creating a Baroque octagonal central space out of the former nave and aisles, and prepared schemes for the Abbey Church at St Gallen, Switzerland, where the central space may have developed from his ideas, although the architect mostly responsible for that great building was Peter Thumb. Moos-brugger's advice (1685, 1717) on the design of the vast Benedictine Abbey Church at Weingarten, Württemberg (built 1714–24) does not appear to have borne fruit, but his influence may be detected (and his involvement is documented) at the former Benedictine Abbey (now Parish Church), Rheinau (1720), the Parish Church, Lachen (1703), the Benedictine Abbey Church, Engelberg (1704), the former Dominican Convent (now Parish) Church, St Katherinenthal (1690), the former Monastic Church at Ittingen (1698—with an exquisite interior by Franz Ludwig Hermann (1710–97) and others), and the former Benedictine Abbey Church, Fischingen (1685, 1706, 1716), all in Switzerland. He was also involved in the design of the Benedictine Abbey Church, Disentis (1696–1712), and other works in Switzerland. Other Moosbruggers, e.g. Andreas (1722–87) and Peter Anton I (1732–1806), were producing stucco-work in the 1780s (e.g. the Church at Horgen, Switzerland), and J. S. Moosbrugger designed the Neo-Classical High-altar in St Gallen (1810). In 1845–6 Hieronymus Moosbrugger (1807–58) executed the Neo-Baroque Hall of Sessions in the Lower Austrian Landhaus, Vienna.
