RENOVATION OF ST. PETER'S CHURCH
 
 

Location: Gornji Mokronog, Slovenia
area: 250 m2
type: sacral architecture
status: under construction

 
 

The location lies directly on the Trebelno - Gorenji Mokronog road outside the compact settlements and is under cultural protection. Project comprises the reconstruction of the Church of St. Peter in Gorenji Mokronog, reconstruction of the ossuary near the church and the new construction of the retaining wall in the form of a stone structure, plus various exterior designs (footpaths, staircases, fences).
The church stands on a slope, raised above the road. The former parish church is orginally a medieval building from the 11th or 12th century, later renovated in the Baroque style. The nave originally had a flat wooden ceiling, which was replaced by a vaulted one in the second half of the 18th century. A bell tower was added to the west wall of the nave, and a sacristy to the north wall. The equipment from this time is also partially preserved - the altar and the pulpit. There are two layers of wall paintings in the nave of the church. The older, only fragmentarily preserved painting dates from the 15th century, while the younger one, which is in a slightly better condition, dates from the second half of the 16th century. At the end of the 17th century, the parish had as many as eleven branches. In 1780, its seat was transferred to the Church of Holly Cross in Trebelno.
Near the church, higher on the slope, stands the Romanesque ossuary of St. Michael from the 12th or 13th century. The ossuary comprises two spaces. The bones are stored in the lower room and the upper room is a chapel.
Reconstruction of the church of St. Peter covers the reconstruction of damaged or unsuitable parts. It comprises a new facade (new plaster, painting, eaves…), replacement of roofing and, if necessary, wooden roof structure, cleaning and impregnation of doors, replacement of windows, construction of new interior plasters, new paving of the church interior… Preserved equipment is restored, other necessary equipment the interior of the church is being rebuilt. Interior paintings and facade paintings are to be restored.
Reconstruction of the ossuary of St. Michael includes reconstruction of walls - removal of concrete seals and filling of missing parts with stones, application of pavement in the ossuary, correction of the roof structure including replacement of roofing (slate instead of sheet metal) and protection of the building from intrusion of animals and leaves.
The purpose the new retaining wall is to protect the bank from erosion and to rehabilitate dangerous, unstable terrain. The new retaining wall will also be used to arrange new pedestrian access to the church from the west. The retaining wall will be made in the form of a stone structure, topped by a footpath with a staircase.
