Long Description:
Baroque sculpture was launched by a series of plague columns in the style of Prague's Bendl. The first column is the Lanškroun one, which was erected at the cost of the city in 1684. It was built by A. Castelli of Kyšperk (Letohrad), the scupltor was H. A. Beyerhoff and the stonemason was K. Wölff, both of whom were from Kladsko. The podium has several levels and is fitted with a prismatic base featuring inscriptions including the dedication inscription with a relief crown, the symbol of the city of Lanškroun.


The chronograms are located on the Marian Column. The Roman numerals of chronograms are larger than the other letters and are not color-coded from the rest of the text.
