Archaeological research in the area of the chateau park uncovered the relic of the Gothic church of St. Elisabeth, dated to the second half of the 13th century. It is a single-nave building with a rectangular finish (length 25 m, boat width 13 m, presbytery width 10.5 m). The church probably had an older predecessor - a wooden structure on a stone foundation, dating from the mid-13th century. At the same time, the church site was a burial place: a grave of a young woman and a 1.5-year-old child, dated 13th/14th century were found outside the presbytery wall. In the presbytery, there were 3 graves of men dating back to the 14th century. It is very likely that these are the Lords of the Wallenstein family. Archaeological research in graves in the Church of St. Elisabeth unearthed a small collection of animal bone remains. The occurrence of bones of young and mature cattle and domestic fowls, which are abundant in the archaeozoological assemblage, indicates the prevailing meat consumption of these animals. The butchering marks on their bones document removal of meat from the carcasses.

, from St. Paul to St. Gregory the Great (6th century) and Francis of Assisi (13th century), the innocence of the fool is seen and presented as a model of the spiritual ideal of simplicity and humility, in contrast to the intellectual vanity and materialism of the world’s sages. In the 13th-14th centuries, a stream of distinction begins between the innocent fool and his imitator, who earns their existence from this activity, and a number of authors such as Guilelmus Peraldus, Geoffrey Chaucer, John Mirc, and William Langland link the fool to the devil.
