Czenstochau, a Polish town in the government of Warsaw, on the Warta, near the Silesian frontier, and near the Warsaw and Cracow railway. Just outside is a convent noted for its miraculous picture of our Lady painted (so says tradition) by St. Luke upon a panel furnished by St. Joseph. Many pilgrims visit this picture. The monks were expelled in 1867 upon political charges. The town made a brave defence against the Swedish army in 1655.
