ST. JOHN OF NEPOMUK

John of Nepomuk, or John Nepomucene, Polish - Jan Nepomucen, Czech - Jan Nepomucký (c. 1345 – March 20, 1393) is a national saint of the Czech Republic, who was drowned in the Vltava river at the order of King Wenceslaus, King of the Romans and King of Bohemia. Later accounts state that he was the confessor of the queen of Bohemia and refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. On the basis of this account, John of Nepomuk is considered the first martyr of the Seal of the Confessional, a patron against calumnies and, because of the manner of his death, a protector from floods.

The figure of Saint John of Nepomuk is often encountered in Central and Eastern Europe, including the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Italy and Lithuania. A statue of the Saint has often been erected on bridges or near the rivers and streams.
He is usually portrayed with a halo of five stars, commemorating the stars that hovered over the Vltava River on the night of his murder. Other attributes useful to identify his pictures are: a priestly dress, the palm of martyrs, carrying a cross, a finger over his lips or an angel indicating silence by a finger over the lips.

In this gallery I will post the imagest of St. John of Nepomuk (paintings, statues, shrines, stained-glass windows) that I found during my excursions in Poland and other countries.
