Immaculata sculpture in Prešov

Rate it Thanks for rating

Majestic baroque sculpture of Immaculate Mary (Immaculata) stands from themid-18th century in the northern part of the historic squareof Prešov. Controversially, the more taintedplace in the capital Šariš region would be difficult to find. In fact in 1687 occurred the events that went down in history as"Prešovslaughter" in this place. In the interest of deterring rebellious Evangelical nobility and burghersat the time of religious wars were after a cruel torture publicly executed 24 Prešov Evangelicals who maintained contacts with representatives of the uprising of ImreTököly. It is possible that the Jesuits, who had installed the sculpture of the Virgin Mary here, did soin order to weaken the memory of this tragic event.
