Abstract. Kaczmarek Romuald, Witkowski Jacek, Das Grabmal Heinrichs I. des Bartigen von
Schlesien und des Hochmeisters des Deutschen Ordens Konrad von Feuchtwangen in der Zister-
zienserinnenklosterkirche in Trebnitz (Trzebnica) (The Tomb of Henryk I (»the Bearded«) of
Silesia and the Great Master of the German order Konrad von Feuchtwangen in the Church
of the Cistercian nuns in Trzebnica), Artium Quaestiones IV, Poznań 1990. Adam Mickiewicz

The article is devoted to the sepulchral tomb with relief images of Prince Henry I and the
Great Master of Teutonic Knights Konrad von Feuchtwangen in the presbytery of the monastery
church in Trzebnica. The authors present the history of the mediaeval tomb of Henry I and the
circumstances which led to bringing the remains of Konrad von Feuchtwangen from the place
where he was originally buried in the church in Drabovice near Kutna Hora. The authors pre-
sented an attempt at reconstruction of the original look of Prince Henry I tomb whose construc-
tion is dated by the authors, on the basis of analysis of style of the preserved text of Latin sepulchral
inscription, to the second half of the 14th century. According to the authors the present tomb-
stone was executed c. 1685. The founder of the tomb was Abbess Krystyna Katarzyna Paw-
łowska of Wierzbno. It is a characteristic example of the sevententh century historism prac-
tised especially in Cistercian monasteries which were the foundations of tlie reigning dynasties.
However, at the same time it presents the then up-to-date idea crusade against the unfaithful
in the context of which there is a reference, apart from the Silesian Prince, to the last defender
of Akka — Konrad von Feuchtwangen.
