Insurrection Church in Hrob

75 Points of Interest

Miners from the neighbouring Saxony were comig to Hrob fo find work there and they also brought in reformation ideas of a protestant priest – Martin Luther. They built a church, which was destroyed due to religious arguments. This action became a pretext for starting the Thirty Years´War (see item 62). It was only the „Tolerance Patent“ issued by Josef II that enabled the protestants to build a new holly place. The new church was built during the 1900 – 1902 period under contribution of German protestants. The foundation-stone was symbolically laid on the 12th December; i.e. on the anniversary of destruction of the former church and this church became an analogy of the mystic Phoenix.
