Geocache Description:

Kostel sv. Jilji / St. Giles Church




Kostel sv. Jilji v Komarove je nejstarsim kostelem i nejstarsi dosud slouzici stavbou v Brne. V roce 2004 oslavil 900 let sve existence.

Romanske jadro kostela pochazi ze zacatku trinacteho stoleti, dostaven byl v obdobi baroka. V arealu kostela je vyznamna arecheologicka lokalita s pozustatky benediktskeho klastera Na luhu, založeneho roku 1195 a zanikleho v roce 1527.

V kostele zustaly historicky a umelecky hodnotné veci: pri rekonstrukci objeveny portal z doby kolem roku 1200, kamenna krtitelnice a kazatelna (nyni rozebrana) z roku 1574 (v Komarove jsou od roku 1790), drevene plastiky Komarovske Madony z doby kolem roku 1500 (v kostele je kopie) a sv. Jilji z roku 1871, obraz Panny Marie mariazellske z roku 1722 pochazejici ze zborene kaple, obraz sv. Jilji z roku 1826.

V blizkosti kostela se take nachazi Kaple Vzkriseni nad hrobkou rodiny Schindleru majitelu mlyna a velkostatku Rajecek. Tato novogoticka stavba z rezneho zdiva byla postavena roku 1856.


This church originally formed part of the Benedictine provostship which was established in 1104. Most of the knowledge of the history of this, one of the oldest buildings in Brno, has been gained from archaeological excavations. During the Hussite (1421) and Bohemian-Hungarian (1468-1478) Wars, it was largely destroyed, and the church has therefore undergone a great deal of reconstruction and repair over time. In 1854 the neo-gothic sacristy (today’s chapel) was built, and further changes were made. In the 19th century the original spire was replaced by today’s V-shaped roof. On the neo-gothic altar inside the church there is a small late-gothic carving of the Virgin Mary dating from c. 1500.
