Penitential crosses

Penitential cross


  • Address: ul. Kopernika, 55-020 Wilczków
Penitential crosses dating back to the 14th to 16th century. Located near the local church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, both monuments were mentioned before WWII. In a 1931 study, one of the crosses is said to have been serving as a footbridge over a ditch. It was only in 1979 that it was discovered again and inventoried, and after a few years, placed at the church wall. In 2004, at the initiative of the Brotherhood of the Crusaders, one of the crosses was excavated, and then positioned deeper, so that its height slightly decreased. The artifact is badly damaged, with an irregular shape.
