The DEDICATION of the CATHEDRAL BASILICA in PELPLIN
In the Cathedral Basilica – Solemnity
Mestwin II, duke of Pomerania, brought Cistercians to Pelplin and they built in the neighbourhood of their monastery a magnificent temple that aroused the admiration of the contemporaries, which is mentioned by Jan Długosz, a Polish chronicler. The church was destroyed twice: during the Teutonic wars and during the wars with Swedes. In the 18th century, after the dissolution of monasteries by the Prussian government, the Holy See moved an episcopal see from Chełmża to Pelplin, making the post-monastic church the cathedral.
