Przecław of Pogorzela

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Przecław of Pogorzela (Polish: Przecław z Pogorzeli) (ca. 1310 – 6 April 1376 in Otmuchów) was a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church and Bishop of Wrocław from 1342–1376. [1]

Przecław of Pogorzela was born around 1310 into noble family in the Duchy of Brześc.[2] By April 1329 was Canon of Wrocław. In 1336 he visited Bologna to study.

On 5 May 1341 he was elected Bishop of Wrocław, however due to opposition of the Archbishop of Gniezno, Janisław, he had to personally go to Avignon for Papal approval, which was confirmed on 28 January 1342.

A tireless builder, he oversaw the completion of Wroclaw Cathedral, built the Church of St. Stanislaus, and Dorothy, the chapel of St. Mary's Church and Joseph's Hospital in Nysa. He also founded Carmelite, Carthusian, Augustinian and Benedictine monasteries. He introduced the feast of St. Jadwiga and also had audiences with Emperor Charles IV of Luxembourg and Casimir the Great. In 1348, he purchased the castle of Jánský vrch from Bolko II of Świdnica, and turned it into the palace of the prince-bishops of Wrocław.

He died on the night of 5 to 6 April 1376 in Otmuchów.[2] and was buried in the chapel of St. Mary's Church, Wrocław Cathedral, in a marble sarcophagus. His has been considered a "golden age" of the bishopric of Wrocław.
