Rooted in history. Having arrived in the modern age. Lived with heart.

The name "Zehentner" comes from the medieval "tithe" (Latin decima), and was mentioned for the first time in 1357. It refers generally to the tenth part of the own ground-property, which was cast as a tax. The "tithe" was for the 6 Century, the most important duty of the faithful in the church. That was the "Pfarrzehnt" (Tithe of the Pastor) that was destined for the maintenance of the pastor. There were even a tithe, which was collected for the sovereign. The "Zehentner" was responsible for the timely delivery of the tithe on the part of farmers.
