THE CENTENARY OF RESTORATION OF KING CASIMIRUS THE GREAT’S SEPULCHRAL MONUMENT IN THE WAWEL CATHEDRAL
Languages of publication
In the year 1869 the restoration of King Casimirus the Great’s sepulchral monument has been carried out. Its main purpose consisted in supplementing of some missing elements that once formed the parts of the canopy crown piece and those of columns as well. From the accompanying drawings may easily be seen the elements that have been replaced in the course of the said restoration. The idea to restore this object dating as far back as to the 14-th century was taken by the Cracow Scientific Society. In the course of restoration works a striking discovery was made, namely within the tomb chest the rests of coffin were found containing the ashes of the King’s corpse together with a full set of royal regalia.
