Filial church of St Martin - Zabytek.pl

Address
Bukowiec

Location
woj. dolnośląskie, pow. jeleniogórski, gm. Mysłakowice-gmina wiejska

The building was constructed in several stages.It was first erected in the 14th century and then redesigned during the early 16th century.

The church subsequently underwent alteration works both in the 18th and the 19th century. It is a unique example of a rural church with unusual, rare in Silesia construction and decorative solutions, whose history is connected with the famous local noble family of the von Zedlitz family.

Historia

The first mentions of the church date back to 1399, whereas the church most likely had been erected earlier in the same century. Its current form, however, is the result of a redesign which took place in the early 16th century. During the 16th century, the northern chapel was added to the church. In the 18th century, the tower was covered with a bulbous cupola; the façade decorations were also executed during the same period. The decoration of the façade dates back to 19th century. The feature was renovated in 1956 and in the years 1978-1979.

Opis

The church is situated in the north-eastern part of the village and surrounded by a cemetery.  It is a Late Gothic structure oriented towards the east, with its individual sections being clustered around its single nave in an additive fashion. The building is a masonry structure made of split stone. It consists of a broad nave on a roughly square floor plan as well as a narrower, rectangular chancel; both sections of the church feature vaulted ceilings of the barrel type. Towards the east there is a chapel, positioned on the axis of the chancel and covered with a groin vault with a keystone adorned with the coat of arms of the von Zedlitz noble family. Northwards, a chapel annex adjoins the nave, illuminated with a window topped with an tented arch and featuring a diamond vault, which is a considerable rarity in Silesia. A massive tower adjoins the church to the south, its floor plan being roughly square in shape; the upper section of the tower is much narrower than its base, taking the form of a wooden steeple crowned with a bulbous cupola with a roof lantern topped by a spire. The low ground floor section of the tower incorporates a pointed-arch portal. Most of the windows of the church are topped with semicircular arches and framed with plain window surrounds. The original furnishings of the church included a Gothic triptych of the Holy Family (ca. 1510, currently kept at the National Museum in Warsaw) as well as a triptych depicting the Lamentation of Christ (ca. 1480, currently forming a part of the main altarpiece at the Church of St Peter and Paul in the city of Wrocław).

The church is surrounded by stone wall with a gatehouse.

The church is closed and is only used occasionally. For more information, please contact the parish office.
