Geocache Description:


[LV] Rūjienas Sv.Bērtuļa baznīca

Rūjienas senatnes lieciniece savā pirmajā izskatā celta reizē ar Rūjienas ordeņa pili 1263.gadā gandrīz 2 km no tās. Mistiskie stāsti par apakšzemes eju no baznīcas uz pili vēl aizvien ir dzīvi un nodarbina rūjieniešu fantāziju. Gotu stilā celtais dievnams Rīgas ielā 32 vairākkārt nopostīts, pārbūvēts un pārveidots. Apkārt baznīcai mūra žogs, kurā atstātas divas ieejas — mazie vārti uz mācītāja muižas pusi un lielie vārti uz Rūjas upi.

Pēc pēdējā ugunsgrēka 1974.gadā, kad baznīca pilnībā izdega, un 10 pamestības gadiem tā pašu spēkiem atkal atjaunota. Vien eja baznīcas sienā joprojām ved uz nekurieni un gailis sakristejā gaida laiku, kad varēs modināt pilsētu. Rūjienai ļoti trūkst baznīcas torņa.

Baznīcā atrodas piemiņas plāksnes un tēlnieka Egona Zvirbuļa veidotais piemineklis "Uz tēvzemes altāra" Pirmajā pasaules karā un atbrīvošanas cīņās kritušajiem draudzes locekļiem. Ugunsgrēkā izglābta un saglabājusies Igaunijas vācu gleznotāja Fridriha Ludviga fon Maidela (1795-1846) altārglezna, kuru 1836.gadā mācītājs Benjamiņš Bergmanis Tērbatā ieguvis pret veselu pajūgu senu Bībeļu kolekciju.

[EN] St. Bartholomevv's Church


 

Rūjiena's ancient history is reflected in the face of the first Teutonic church built almost two kilometers from the castle in 1263. Mythical tales of an underground tunnel from the church to the castle are alive and well and embraced by the local inhabitants.

The Gothic style church at 32 Riga Street has been destroyed and rebuilt many times. A stone wall encircles the church with two gates — a smaller entrance facing the manor and a larger entrance facing the Rūja River.

After the complete destruction of the church during the last fire in 1974, it was abandoned for ten years before locals initiated reconstruction. One of the church walls continues to lead to nowhere and the rooster in the vestry waits to wake the town. Rūjiena sorely misses a bell tower.

A memorial plaque and sculptor Egons Zvirbulis' monument, At the FatherlandS Altar, in memory of members of the congregation who died during WWI and the fight for Latvia's freedom are located at the church. The altar painting is the work of Estonian German painter Friedrich Ludwig von Maydell (1795-1846) that was acquired by Minister Benjamin Bergmann for a cartful of old Bibles in 1836 in Tartu. The painting survived fire and destruction.
