“Black Madonna of Czestochowa” in Poland
For more than 600 years, the »Black Madonna of Czestochowa« has been venerated with a depth of faith that impresses non-Poles over and over again. Many legends and stories entwine around the image of Mary, which has been shown in the basilica of the Pauline monastery on the Light Mountain (Jasna Góra) near Częstochowa since the Middle Ages. Check beautypically to see Poland a Historical Cultural Site.
According to a legend going back to the 6th century, the Evangelist Luke had painted two pictures of Mary on the tabletop in the house of the Holy Family in Nazareth; one made it to Italy, the second to Constantinople. A Ruthenian prince is said to have brought it to Poland from there. Prince Wladislaw von Opole gave the picture, originally probably a Byzantine icon from the 6th to 9th centuries painted on cypress wood, in 1384 to the order of the Pauline monastery of Jasna Góra, which had been founded two years earlier. In the following years, numerous believers made pilgrimages to the monastery to pray in front of the icon.
The image of the Virgin Mary was badly damaged in an attack on the monastery in 1430. Attempts at restoration remained unsuccessful because the artists lacked knowledge of the ancient wax painting technique (encaustic) and tried to repair the damaged areas with tempera paints. Eventually the old colors were removed and the picture was repainted. The influx of pilgrims meanwhile increased steadily, so that the monastery church had to be replaced by a three-aisled basilica.
In 1655 the monks of Jasna Góra are said to have withstood a 40-day Swedish siege after a procession with the image of Mary. As a result of this legend, belief in the assistance of the Virgin Mary was strengthened across the country and the Swedes were expelled from Poland. Out of gratitude, King John II Casimir appointed the Virgin Mary “Queen of Poland” in 1656 and placed the countries of his crown under her protection. Thus the Black Madonna became a symbol of the national resistance of the Polish people and their loyalty to the Catholic faith. The Pauline Monastery of Jasna Góra has been the most important place of pilgrimage in Poland ever since.
During the Polish partitions (1772, 1793, 1795) the monastery represented the national and religious continuity of the Polish nation. All attempts to stop the pilgrimages there were unsuccessful. After the incorporation of Congress Poland into the Russian Empire, Tsar Alexander II had the monastery expropriated in 1864 and the enclosure of the Pauline monks lifted. But even this measure did not lead to the desired success; At the beginning of the 20th century, the image of the Black Madonna already attracted around one million believers every year. Even during the Second World War and the time of communist rule, Częstochowa was considered the spiritual capital of Poland. Today the monastery is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Europe. Up to 4 million believers make a pilgrimage to Jasna Góra every year – many of them on foot.
Another religious community with references to the Bible are the Jehovah’s Witnesses (0.34% of the population; recognized as a religious community since 1989).
The Jews (including around 200 Karaites) and Muslims are non-Christian minorities. The Jewish communities, whose historical roots go back to the 11th century (evidence of a Jewish community in Przemyśl), have around 1,200 to almost 3,000 members (0.003–0.007% of the population; 1939: over 3.3 million).; Today’s centers of Jewish life are Warsaw and Krakow (with the oldest synagogue in Poland).
The Muslims who have lived in Poland since the time of the Golden Horde (0.002–0.003% of the population, especially around Białystok) are descendants of the Tatars. An estimated 8,000-25,000 foreign Muslims live next to them in Poland (Islamic centers in Warsaw, Białystok, Wroclaw, Lublin).
Climatically, Poland forms a transition area in which the continentality of the climate increases from the north-west, which is predominantly dominated by Atlantic influences, to the east and south-east. The highest monthly mean temperatures (in July) reach 18–20 ° C in the lowlands, the lowest (in January) are below -5 ° C in eastern and south-eastern Poland. The annual amount of precipitation in the glacial valleys reaches around 500 mm, in the eastern low mountain ranges up to 700 mm and in the Carpathians 1,500 mm; The precipitation is distributed relatively evenly over the year, the maximum precipitation is reached in the summer months.
