Abstract

The shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows in Koruška along with other Marian sanctuaries traces its beginnings in devout folk tradition. Miracles and grantings were mirrored in religious worship, at first only in the close vicinity and then in the whole of the once great and glorious Križevci co unty. At first only a solitary miraculous statue of Our Lady of Sorrows on the bank of the Koruška Brook, it was placed into a newly built chapel in 1702. In 1715 the chapel was extended and it got the shape of a Marian sanctuary that inspired spirituality of religious locals.
