Church of Our Lady Victorious

The Church of Our Lady Victorious in Malá Strana, the "Lesser Quarter", is a church governed and administered by the Discalced Carmelites, and home of the famous Child Jesus statue called theInfant Jesus of Prague. The statue, a 16th-century depiction of infant Jesus holding a globus cruciger, was donated to the Carmelite friars in 1628 by Polyxena, 1st Princess Lobkowicz. A chapel dedicated to the Holy Trinity was built on this site in 1584, following Rudolph II´s Letter of Majesty a larger church for German Protestants. With the Battle of White Mountain, 8 November 1620, the Counter-Reformation signalled the re-Catholicism of Prague.
