Description of contents:
Roman Style in Poland in XI Century
The Roman Architecture was developing in Poland under the German influence. Not too many pre- Roman buildings known from the archeological expeditions were remaining in the context of resemblance towards the Caroling epoch’s masterpieces. In that style, there appeared to be the first cathedrals on the Ostrow Tumski in Poznan, in Gniezno, or the Rotunda of ST. Felix and Adaukt in Cracow (on the picture below). The first building wholly in Roman Style, based on the Saxon patterns was probably the Wawel Cathedral built by the Polish King Kazimierz Odnowiciel. Almost nothing however has remained of it to our times. From the followed Wawel Cathedral built by the King Wladyslaw Herman, there have survived to our times the underground areas (with the St. Leonard’s crypt). Probably, the most interesting Polish monument which has remained not only with its fundaments is the Cracow St . Andrew’s Church, erected in 1086 by Sieciech, who was a palatinate of Wladysław Herman. Whereas taking altogether into consideration that one is one of the most important Roman Style artifacts in Poland.
