Komańcza - Cerkiew prawosławna pw. Opieki Matki Bożej #2
Poland

History:

Village Komancza was first mentioned in historical records in 1512. We don't have information from when concretely parish in Komancza started to act but we know that location privilege foresees for church 1 field free.

      Church under call The Protection of Mother of God was built in 1802 on place of previous, burned in 1800. It was built on defensive hill and surrounded by river stone wall. One may bell-tower is from 1834. To 1947 church was one of Greek-Catholic parishes. In 1962 there was came into being Orthodox parish. In 22nd June 1963 cemetery and bell-tower were officially passed to using of parish. In 1965-1970 there was conducted thorough repair of temple (there were patched up decreases in walls of church, foundations were renovated etc.). In 1983-1985 there were conducted conservatory works of icon wall (from 1832) and polychromy. In 1986 there was finished building of parish-house and in 1993-1995 there were another repair and protecting works.

      Based on photos from Masons' Group 'MAGURYCZ' we affirm that church surely was repaired in interwar period. There was changed roof cover from shingle to sheet metal.

      Before the fire church was a high class relic, often visited by tourists. In the interior there were many elements of baroque and rococo equipment. Unfortunately, everything burned in Sep 2006.

Nowadays the recunstruction of the Church is completed as an accurate copy of previous historical building.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
