St.Joseph’s Church The

St.Joseph’s Church The church was a part of the Capuchin monastery founded in 1630 by Gerhard of Questenberg. This simple rectangular unadorned Capuchin-style building with a small courtyard in which there are Baroque sandstone sculptures of St Jude Thaddeus and two angels under vaulted roofs, also has an unpretentious interior. The Prussian siege of Prague in 1757 is commemorated by two cannonballs embedded in the church walls.

Until 1997, the cathedral was dedicated only to Saint Vitus, and is still commonly named only as St. Vitus Cathedral. This cathedral is a prominent example of Gothic architecture and is the largest and most important church in the country. Located within Prague Castle and containing the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors, the cathedral is under the ownership of the Czech government as part of the Prague Castle complex. The current cathedral is the third of a series of religious buildings at the site, all dedicated to St. Vitus. 6

The first church was an early Romanesque rotunda founded by Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia in 930. The construction of the present Gothic Cathedral began on 21 November 1344, King John of Bohemia laid the foundation stone for the new building. The patron was Charles IV, King of Bohemia and a soon-to-be Holy Roman Emperor, who intended the new cathedral to be a coronation church, family crypt, treasury for the most precious relics of the kingdom. The entire building process came to a halt with the beginning of Hussite War in the first half of 15th century. In 1997, on 1000th anniversary of the death of Saint Voitechus, the church was rededicated to Saint Wenceslaus and Saint Adalbert. Walter Campesi 7
