Geocache Description:

[LV] Daugavas ielejas mala redzamas Selpils luteranu baznicas drupas. Ta celta 19. gadsimta vidu. Otra pasaules kara laika – 1941. gada – padomju armija atkapjoties sašava baznicas torni, un ari 1944. gada ta pati armija baznicu vel vairakkart sašava. Lai gan pec kara Selpils baznicu atjaunoja, padomju laikos ta pamazam aizlaista posta. Muri un tornis puslidz ir saglabajies. Tagad baznicu iecerets atjaunot. 2008.gada, kad Selpils svineja savu 800 gadu jubileju, baznicas tornis dabuja jaunu jumtu.

Vispar laika rituma ši ir jau ceturta baznica Selpili. Zinams, ka jau kopš 16. gadsimta vidus šeit bijušas tris baznicas, tacu tas lidz musdienam gan nav saglabajušas. Pirmaja, kas celta pec Kurzemes hercoga paveles, stradajis Georgs Mancelis – pirmais ieverojamakais latviešu garigas literaturas rakstnieks. Otraja Selpils baznica 18. gadsimta otra puse ilgus gadus stradajis Gothards Fridrihs Stenders, kas vairak pazistams ka Vecais Stenders.
Slepnis ir baznicas drupas. Dodoties prom, atskatieties un parliecinieties, ka esat slepni atlikuši atpakal ta, ka no lejas nevar redzet!
