Gaworzyce – St Barbara’s Church

History

Church of St. Barbara in Gaworzyce was erected in the 14th century, and at the beginning of the 16th century, a tower was added to it. It is unknown whether it suffered during the fightings at the beginning of the 17th century, when the rebellious peasants opposed the construction of a new lord’s farm on the common pasture. This rebellion led to several invasions of the army, brought by owner of the village. After refusing to suppress the unrest by the burghers of Głogów and an unsuccessful invasion at the end of 1604, eventually in 1607 the army devastated the Gaworzyce.

Architecture

The church is a aisleless construction, built on a rectangular plan, with a four-sided chancel on the eastern side, sacristy adjacent to it from the north and a tower on the west side. Both the nave, the chancel and the tower are strengthened in corners by buttresses.
