Pseudo–Gothic main altar

There was standing a great gothic arc (allegedly from 1311) that was moved under the side arcade of chancel in the second half of 17th century. Pseudo-Gothic main altar

Instead of it, there was built a massive baroque retable (apparently made by sculptor Ondrej Eigler from Kutna Hora) in 1687–1694. There were placed two paintings of Petr Brandl in 1730. Both (gothic and baroque) altars were destroyed by fire in 1796. The provisional altar was gained from a ruined Carmelite church in Pacov. It stayed in Kolín church until 1910. It was removed within purist renewal and it was returned to Pacov. The Contemporary sandstone is work of students of the sculpture school in Horice.
