The Historian

Hunawihr The Church and the strengthened Churchyard Copyright ARdVAccording to a tradition from the 11th century, Huno and his wife Sainte Huna, owners of the village, offered it, in the 7th century, to the missionary bishop Saint Dié (the monk " Deodat ", founder of the Monastery of Saint-Dié in the département of Vosges, 88).
The seigniory of " Horbourg ", then the duchy of " Würtemberg " were respectively owners of the village.
The pilgrimage dedicated to Sainte-Hune attracted many believers from 1520 until the Reform (1534).
At the beginning of 17th century, an plague epidemic gradually emptied the village of its inhabitants.
Then, from 1687, with the arrival of some new catholic families, the " Simultaneum " was introduced (alternation of the worships within a same religious building).
