This is one of the oldest and the largest mediaeval churches in the city, raised around 1250. A temple situated previously in this location, the first one built on the left bank of the Oder, raised in times before the official location of the city, in the beginnings of the XII century, and consecrated in the year 1112. It was destroyed together with the whole left-bank city during the Mongolian invasion. Originally, the terrain and the first church standing on it belonged to Augustans from Sobotka, The Church Under the Call of Saint Wojciech however in 1226 it was given to the Dominicans brought here from Cracow. In the years 1250-1270, after the Mongolian invasion, they raised a church that still exists.
