In 2011, a sensational discovery was made in the former Cistercian presbytery in Cieplice Slaskie Zdroj (Warmbrunn), currently a district of the city of Jelenia Gora (Hirschberg) in Silesia: a collection of almost 90 baroque frescoes was discovered beneath layers of plaster. Among these was a cycle of estimated 54 paintings (only 26 were actually uncovered) dedicated to the persona of St. Bernard of Clairvaux. The renovation and partial reconstruction work conducted in 2012 revealed what is in all probability the most numerous set of painterly representations of the legend of Doctor Mellifluus in Central Europe. Moreover, the circumstances of the creation of these paintings throw new light on the baroque iconography of the Cistercian patron in the region.
