The Strahov Monastery Treasury
The exposition consists of a set of works of arts and crafts which document the diversity of the preserved liturgical items. The works were commissioned directly by the order or were acquired by or donated to the Canonry.
Beside many exquisite examples of Czech production, there are unique items of broader European provenance. The aim of the exhibition is not only to present arts and crafts of a liturgical nature that have been owned by the Strahov Canonry for centuries, but also to explain their symbolical meanings and liturgical functions. The presentation shows two of the five fundamental spiritual directions of the order - liturgical life and Eucharistic life.
The exposition will be prepared in co-operation with the Olomouc Museum of Art, with a financial contribution from the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic from the programme of Support of Projects, Displays and Exhibitions.
Open from 01.02.2017.
