Baroque Synagogues in the Czech Lands (English version)

In addition to an introductory study on the main types of 17th- and 18th-century synagogues in Bohemia and Moravia, this catalogue provides detailed information about 43 synagogue buildings from the late 16th to the early 19th centuries, which are documented in historical and present-day photographs and plans. Most of these buildings underwent renovations after 1989, which at least, in part, returned them to their original appearance. Among the most valuable Baroque monuments are synagogues with traditional painted wall decorations and Hebrew prayer texts, synagogues of the Polish type with four pillars, synagogues in Moravia and West Bohemia with a central layout and synagogues with a tri-axial structure and a slightly longitudinal shape. This catalogue also provides detailed documentation of twenty Baroque synagogues that were demolished during the Second World War and during the Communist regime. It also contains information about the renovation of synagogues in Bohemia and Moravia in the last twenty years, a bibliography and a glossary of Hebrew terms.
