Long Description:

Depicted Baroque statue of St. Monica (Sv. Monika), one of patron saints of the Augustinian order, decorates front facade of the convent Church of the Birth of the Virgin Mary (klášterní kostel Narození Panny Marie) in Tábor.

Saint Monica (331–387), also known as Monica of Hippo, (Be. Timaniket) was an early Christian saint and the mother of St. Augustine of Hippo. She is remembered and honoured in most Christian denominations, albeit on different feast days, for her outstanding Christian virtues, particularly the suffering caused by her husband's adultery, and her prayerful life dedicated to the reformation of her son, who wrote extensively of her pious acts and life with her in his Confessions. Popular Christian legends recall Saint Monica weeping every night for her son Augustine. [wiki]

Convent Church is an early Baroque structure built between the years 1642-1666 for the monastic order of Barefoot Augustinians, the mainstay of Counter-Reformation. The church's front facade in the style of Classical Baroque is decorated by statues of St. Augustine and his mother, St. Monica.
