Tresures of the Village: Wooden Churches of Southern Little Poland


Language: English

The wooden churches of southern Little Poland represent outstanding examples of the different aspects of medieval church-building traditions in Roman Catholic culture.

They offered an alternative to the stone structures erected in urban centres.
