GOOD MORNING PRAGOBOTS!
We conclude our series on The Black Madonna and Child with….
“THE MIRACULOUS BLACK MADONNA”
Beilstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
..The village is a pilgrimage site, for it is here that the “Miraculous Black Madonna” is displayed in the Baroque Saint Joseph’s Monastery Church. This is a statue of Spanish origin from the 12th or 13th century, left behind by the Spaniards after their short time as Beilstein’s lords after the Thirty Years’ War and shortly thereafter taken to France, only to be brought back to Beilstein in 1950.
We hope you enjoyed this series on The Black Madonna and Child. For more information on Black Madonnas, check out the following:
