On the 12th of September the Roman Catholic Church is celebrating the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary established to commemorate the Victory of Vienna, the battle that took place at Kahlenberg Mountain on that day in the year 1683. The united Christian army under the leadership of the Polish king Jan III Sobieski defeated the Ottoman army.
The painting of Jan Matejko “Jan Sobieski at Vienna” painted of the 200. anniversary of the Victory of Vienna was given to the pope Leon XIII as “a gift from the Polish nation”. You can admire it in the Vatican Museums. The king in the painting sitting on a horse is sending the message to the pope Innocent XI: “VENIMUS, VEDIMUS, DEUS VICIT” – “We came, we saw, God conquered”. On the picture frame there is an extract from Psalm 115: “Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory”.
