Romanian term or phrase: clopotnita scunda cu coif piramidal
Pereţii păstraţi înscriu un plan dreptunghiular, cu absida poligonală, decroşată. Altarul conservă, la interior, acoperirea originară, constituită dintr-o boltă în leagăn şi trei fâşii curbe, pentru naos refăcându-se o îngustă boltă semicilindrică, racordată, printr-un timpan, cu restul tavanului drept. O clopotniţă scundă, cu coif piramidal, a fost suprapusă actualei părţi de vest, întreg edificiul fiind protejat printr-o învelitoare de şiţă pe conturul pereţilor.

Explanation:
The current remote steeple, a former gate
tower of the fortified church complex,

reconstruction during the times of Bishop
Julius Echter (1595), it has been carrying an
octagonal pointed pyramid helmet roof, the
feature of churches of this period. http://www.giebelstadt.de/Eigene_Dateien/download/gie_kultur...
