Description of contents:
Dziekanowice is situated on the route from Wieliczka to Dobczyce, in the significantly settled landscape of the Beskidy Mountains. There was built there a bricked church- sanctuary, near to which we find a strongly bowed XVII century dated temple. It was added in 1645 to a one nave possessing Roman Style church from the beginnings of XIII century, which at present creates the presbytery.

Gmerks (the hewers’ marks) on the beaten Stones of the eastern wall of the presbytery) in a shape of an arrow and a combination of a cross and a half circle.
The small church was composed from the beaten (its face is refreshed now by a conservation not far ago), featured with straightly closed presbytery. The object has preserved practically completely untouched, however whereas excluding the western Wall- purposely collapsed by the Baroque’s innovators. The sandstone elements were adorned with slanting cuts- off, there have also preserved the hewers’s characteristic signs- the so- called gmerks. On the eastern wall of the presbytery, there still exists a half spherical small window framed by 3 leaves’ ornaments.
