Digital image of Apse of the Church of the Assumption from the courtyard. Strahov is one of the oldest religious houses in Prague and houses a very valuable collection of incunabulae or illustrated manuscripts that are used for critical Biblical studies and translation. The house was established by Praemonstratensians under Bishop Zdik and King Vladislav I as a Romanesque basilica. The monastery has been rebuilt through ages and the present Baroque construction comes after the Conter-Reformation and Thirty Years War of 1627 under Rudolf II patronage. The chief architects are M Filippi, G D Orsi, Siard Nosecky, Jean B Mathey, and Johann Anton Quitainer.
