Wooden churches of Southern Lesser Poland

These churches represent extraordinary examples of the different aspects of church-building tradition in Roman Catholic culture in the Middle Ages. The churches were built using the horizontal log technique, very common in medieval eastern and northern Europe, and began with Gothic ornament and polychrome detail. They were sponsored by noble families and emblematized the social status of the family. They were meant to be an alternative to the stone structures erected in urban areas.
