For a long time, there have been no monks in
their characteristic white robes, with black
scapulars, in the Cistercian monastery in
Rudy, near Racibórz. The monastery was
dissolved at the beginning of the nineteenth
century. Before that, for nearly six centuries,
people had prayed, culture had been spread,
land cultivated, factories built in this corner of
Silesia. A beautiful white church and a
monastery complex of the Diocese of Gliwice
– that is what has been left after the monks.
Efforts are underway to put the complex onto
the UNESCO World Heritage LiSt
The church of the Assumption of the Blessed
Virgin Mary is the most important part of the
Cistercian monastery and palace complex in
Rudy. It is one of the oldest shrines of Silesia.
Its pride is the image of the Madonna and
Child, revered for centuries by local believers
as miraculous. Originally, the church was
Gothic, as is the image of the Madonna,
dating back to the fifteenth century. In 1995,
the bishop of the Diocese of Gliwice raised the
church to the rank of the Diocesan Sanctuary
of Our Lady the Humble of Rudy.
One of the historic monuments of the village
of Rudy is a building of the former infirmary
founded by Dr. Juliusz Roger in 1858. While in
service, the infirmary bore the name of Saint
Charles. Dr Roger was the doctor of Duke,
Victor I, and became known as a social activist
and a passionate of folk culture. The small
hospital building was built in the style of
Historicism, with some neo-Gothic elements.
It now houses the Education Center of
Located among the forests, the village of Rudy is
known primarily for the old Cistercian abbey and
the Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin
Mary. To the east of the parish church, it is
worthwhile to visit a cemetery, which has been
operating on this site since the late seventeenth
century. The neo-Romanesque church of Saint Mary
Magdalene can be found on the cemetery. In its
vicinity, we can see, among others, the tombstone
of Juliusz Roger, a doctor and social activist, who
still remains in the memory of the local population.
