Bone Church

Die Knochenkirche, gebaut im gotischen Stil Ende des 14. Jh., besteht aus zwei aufeinandergesetzten Kapellen. Abt Jindrich reiste in 1278 nach Jerusalem von wo er eine handvoll Erde vom Kalvarienberg
(Schädelstätte) mitbrachte und hier auf dem Friedhof verstreute. Seither hat dieser Friedhof den Ruf der “heiligen Erde”, sodass auch viele aus der Umgebung und gar aus dem Ausland hier beerdigt werden wollten. Die meisten, die hier beerdigt wurden, stammen aus Polen, Deutschland (Bayern) und Belgien. In der Kirche sind Knochen von ca. 40 00 Menschen aufgebaut, da der Friedhof Anfang des 16 Jh. verkleinert wurde. Die Knochen stammen aus dem Mittelalter aus den Zeiten der Pestepidemien (1318) und den Hussitenkriegen (1421).
The Bone Church, built in the Gothic style at the end of the 14th century, consists of two chapels set one on top of the other. Abbot Jindrich traveled in 1278 to Jerusalem from where he brought a handful of earth from the Calvary (Skull) and scattered here in the cemetery. Since then, this cemetery has the reputation of the "holy earth", so that many from the area and even from abroad wanted to be buried here. Most of those buried here are from Poland, Germany (Bavaria) and Belgium. In the church bones of about 40 00 people are built, since the cemetery was reduced in the early 16 Century. The bones come from the Middle Ages from the times of the plague epidemics (1318) and the Hussite wars (1421).
