Białowice – church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

History

   The church dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was built at the end of the fifteenth or early sixteenth century using the walls of the older temple. In the eighteenth century it was enlarged by a sacristy and a porch. Since the time of the Reformation to 1945, it served the Evangelicals.

Architecture

   The church in Białowice is a building made of galcial erratic stones, one-nave with a separate, narrower than the nave, three sides ended chancel, and a rectangular tower from the west. The chancel was strengthened with thick buttresses due to the installation inside the net vault.

Current state
 

   Today, the medieval layout is distorted by the windows significantly enlarged in the early modern period, the modern sacristy attached to the north wall of the chancel and the porch by the nave. Inside, there are renaissance wooden matronea made by Martel Bisel in 1567. A late romanesque stone baptismal font from the 13th century has also been preserved. The church is surrounded by a 15th century stone wall.
