Sažetak
Votive pillars are a town planning-cum-sculptural brief that is typical of Central Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. The core of the Osijek monument consists of a massive pedestal on which there rests a smooth pillar. The Holy Trinity is at the top. The ground plan of the pedestal is expanded by protuberances of four large volute brackets with pedestals on which stand four statues arranged around the pillar. The saints, traditionally held to be sovereign against the plague, are St. Charles Borromeo and St. Francis Xavier, St. Roch and St. Sebastian, and additionally, a recumbent figure of St. Rozalia. As is often the case with stone monuments in the open-air, the Osijek Column's sculptural saints are suffering from environmental damage. Still, it is clear that a well-trained sculptor who had thoroughly mastered the contemporary Baroque artistic vocabulary was responsible. In 1784, statues of the Immaculate Virgin, St. Catherine, St. John Nepomuk and St. Joseph were transferred from Osijek's two city gates and placed around the perimeter of the monument.
