Brendlorenzen is a suburb of the town of Bad Neustadt an der Saale in the district of Unterfranken in Bavaria, Germany. The village is stretching along a single main street for more than two kilometers. Its length is due to the growing together of originally two separate villages called Brend and Lorenzen. The latter name is derived from the chapel of the same name, which is dedicated to Saint Lawrence . Brend comes from the tributary of the same name, in whose valley the place is located. Brendlorenzen has approximately 4500 residents with several new housing development sites spreading onto the surrounding farm land.
The existence of the community on the Brend was first documented in 742 AD, with the church of Saint Martin coming under the jurisdiction of the newly founded diocese of Würzburg. Original texts identify the parish church in Brendlorenzen and the round church in the Marienberg Fortress in Würzburg as the oldest of the diocese. The parish church was probably consecrated by Saint Willibrord in 706 AD.
