In the Moravian Karst there are three big churches consecrated to The Virgin Mary. These are visited by many pilgrims and have their own calendar of pilgrimages. They are Vranov, Křtiny and Sloup. Churches in these towns are consecrated to The Virgin Mary: Vranov commemorates the birth of The Virgin Mary, Křtiny commemorates the name of The Virgin Mary and Sloup commemorates the sufferings of The Virgin Mary. So we talk about the triangle of The Virgin Mary. This term is the main point of my thesis. After detailed preoccupation of this topic I found that very near these three churches is situated the church of St. Barbora in the town of Adamov. Its ancient gothic altar is carved from wood and we can find it in the church since 1857. It displays the assumption of The Virgin Mary. This altar is called "Světelský" and the origin of the title is in the monastry in Austrian town Zwetter (Světlá) where this altar was made. In February 2010 the altar was placed in the group of the National cultural landmarks. The altar supplements the main feasts of The Virgin Mary: the birth of The Virgin Mary in Vranov, the name of The Virgin Mary in Křtiny, the sufferings of The Virgin Mary in Sloup and in Adamov the altar that displays the assumption of The Virgin Mary. The altar also supplements the main mysteries of the Rosary: the Exhilarating one in Vranov, the Glorious one in Křtiny, the Dolorous one in Sloup and the rosary of the Light in Adamov. In my opinion the deep-seated term triangle of The Virgin Mary should be extended to the quadrangle of The Virgin Mary.
