Smirice, Obořiště, Mala Strana, Cheb, Brevnov, Nová Paka are six dynamic Baroque style churches associated with Christopher Dientzenhofer and belong to the most significant works of Central European Baroque. And also the most discussed topics of Czech art history - authorship of these buildings is the subject of debate for nearly a century. This lecture intends to contribute to the discussion with next piece. It wants to draw attention to one previously overlooked architectural masterpiece, which belong to the most expressive what Baroque architecture in Bohemia originated - chapel of the cloister of the pilgrimage site in Chlum of sv. Mary. Fresh research shows that the chapel wasn`t built in the late 20s, but by the time Christopher Dientzenhofer was in Chlum . It is this architecture really connected with his name?
