Jerzmanowo – St Hedwig’s Church

History

   The church of St. Hedwig in Jerzmanowo was recorded for the first time in 1316. The chancel comes from this period. The nave, tower and sacristy were added in the middle of the fifteenth century. At the end of the 16th century, the southern porch was built and the tower was raised. In 1529, for over one hundred years, it was taken over by Evangelicals. In 1706 a new sacristy was erected, and in 1835, the galleries were extended.

Architecture

   At the end of the Middle Ages, the church achieve the form of a Gothic single-nave building with a separate, narrower, rectangular chancel. On the west side, a four-sided tower was placed on the facade axis. Like the presbytery, it was reinforced with stepped buttresses, while at the tower they were situated perpendicularly to each other, and at an angle at the presbytery. On the north side of the presbytery there is a Gothic sacristy from the 15th century, and at the southern wall of the nave there is a porch from the 16th century. The interior of the two-bay chancel features a cross-rib vault and a Gothic sacramentary from the 15th / 16th century.
