Sakrālās arhitektūras un mākslas mantojums vēsturiskajā Krāslavas rajonā
Rūta Kaminska, Anita Bistere
This book continues the series of publications ‘Monuments of Art in Latvia’ that began with the book ‘The Heritage of Religious Architecture and Art in Daugavpils District ‘ by Rūta Kaminska and Anita Bistere (2006).
This volume in the series “Monuments of Art in Latvia” is devoted to the religious architecture and art of the former Krāslava District. The present-day situation of Krāslava District, corresponding to its former boundaries, is reflected in the treatment of the churches located in the town of Krāslava and in Krāslava County, in the town and county of Dagda, and in Aglona County, arranged in separate chapters.
Just like other parts of Latgale, Krāslava County has had religious sites of all the traditional denominations of Latvia: both Christian (Catholic, Lutheran, Orthodox and Old Believer) and Jewish. In accordance with the approach taken in this series of books, the emphasis in this volume, as in previous ones, is on the appearance of the churches, noting their architectural and artistic qualities.
