Santa Casa Research in Poland

Between September 16-21, Erin Giffin travelled through Poland to visit and compare various replicas of the Santa Casa di Loreto. 

Erin Giffin visited devotional sites in Krzeszow, Lubiaz, Poznan, Henrykow, Głogowek, Piotrkowice, Gołab, Warsaw, and Krakow. The Holy Houses respectively date from between 1630-1780, each at varying levels of preservation, restoration, and active use. 

These visits are part of a larger exploration of replicas of the Santa Casa di Loreto across Europe. To find out more, see the research profile “Devotional Translations.”
