In the shelter of her goodness
Saint Emma, the only Slovenian Saint closely related to our land and people, lived right here in Kozjansko. According to Slovenian folk tradition, Princess Emma was born at the end of the first millennium in the Pilstanj castle in Kozjansko. Of good breeding, according to genealogical records, coming from the noble Bavarian-Austria Luitpoldings family. When she married the Margrave of Savinya William II of Friesach-ZeltshFriulishe became more closely tied to our land. Her estate stretched from Friuli to Upper Styria and down to Lower Carniola.
Despite the tragic loss of her husband and two sons and other trials she faced in life, Emma never lost her faith and smile. Instead she spent her time and estate caring for the poor and establishing many parishes and churches in Slovenia and Austrian Carinthia. Her elevation to sainthood occurred in 1938.
Today, St. Emma is worshipped all over the world as a saint of liberation, a liberator of peasants and prisoners, a rescuer of people in need and a helper of the ill and disabled. Her depictions often include a book, a plate and a spoon in her hands.
Her cultural legacy of caring and kindness now in its third millennium can be found throughout the Kozjansko and Obsotelje. Examples include, the Church of St Emma in St. Emma, the subsidiary church in Pilstanj and her statue nearby, the Castle Podsreda, Olimje Monastary and on her hereditary estate in Imeno where the House of Wines Emino stands today. Through the many nearby towns, Podcetrtek, Mestinje, Rogatec, SmarjepriJelsah, her goodness helped create the culture of our region and people.
