Construction began shortly after the town of Brilon was founded between 1220 and 1250. The late Romanesque hall church with three bays has a transept and a two-bay, straight closed choir, both of which were built in the 14th century. The mighty early Gothic west tower was built after completion of the nave. Due to the slightly elevated position of the church, it is visible from afar. Seen from the market square, the church with the historic town hall in front of it forms an ensemble that is considered Brilon's landmark.
