Geocache Description:


Rūjienas Sv. Bērtuļa baznīca 

 

 

Rūjienas Sv. Bērtuļa (Bartolomeja) baznīca celta gandrīz vienā laikā ar Rūjienas ordeņa pili 1259. – 1263.g. Tā ir viena no vecākām un lielākām baznīcām Vidzemē, ārpus Rīgas.

Sākotnēji romāniska taisnstūra garenplāna halles tipa baznīca pēc 1450. – 1480.g. pārbūves pārtop par trīsjomu gotikas baziliku ar taisnstūra altārgala (prezbitērija) izbūvi. Ziemeļu fasādes daļā altārim piebūvēta sakristeja, baznīcas galveno ieeju rotā smailkoka perspektīvais portāls.

Baznīcas vēsture saistīta ar nepārtrauktiem postījumiem un atkal “augšāmcelšanos”. Vidzemē grūti atrast vēl tik bieži un pamatīgi postītu kulta celtni.

2002.gadā tiek veikts sakristejas kapitālais remonts. Kopš 2003.gada Vasarsvētkiem baznīcu rotā atjaunotais vēsturiskais altāris un kancele.

Šobrīd draudzes vadība ir uzticēta mācītājam Edijam Kalekauram.
