Expanded Description:
A wayside shrines are type of small sacred monuments, usually in some sort of column or pillar with small shelter, placed by a road or pathway, sometimes at a crossroads, but often in the middle of an empty stretch of country road, or at the top of a hill. They symbolize the column at which Christ was scourged, therefore, they are often decorated with symbols associated with Christ's suffering as reprimand, crown of thorns nails and a hammer, pliers, spear, etc. They have been a feature of many cultures, especially European Catholic areas. This type of monument has many names in local languages – e.g. Bildstock, Marterl, Helgenstöckli, Schöpflöffel or Wegstock in German, Boží muka in Czech, Božia muka in Slovak, Koplytstulpis in Lithuanian language. They were built over a long period from the 14. to 20. century. In the 14. to 17. century, were mostly in the form of a sandstone, marble or granite pillar with lantern and a cross on. From the late Baroque period till present, more common type is brick or stone build structure with roof on triple-or square floor plan. However, in some areas (part of Germany, Lithuania) historic and even modern shrines were also made of wood.


The purpose of this WM category is not to document all different types of shrines, but more specifically the small Christian wayside shrines in the shape of a stone or wooden column or brick pillar (for examples see pictures below). We are looking only for a permanent structures, temporary shrines are excluded from this category.

A wayside shrines are not:

Outdoor altars – the purpose of wayside shrines is to remind passers-by the suffering of Christ, not to provide space for worship. They are typically at locations not suitable for religious service and not designed to accommodate clergy or praying believers.
Christian crosses
Statues as Pietas
Stations of the Cross
Wayside or village chapels, niche chapels
