Category:Wayside shrines

English: A wayside shrine is a religious image, usually in some sort of small shelter for the image. Even though in some regions they look like small buildings, a shrines does however not accomodate room for a person to enter; sometimes they are no more than a pillar with a statue inside or on top of it. Placed by a road or pathway, sometimes in a settlement or at a crossroads, but often in the middle of an empty stretch of country road, or at the top of a hill or mountain.
Nederlands: Een wayside shrine (letterlijk: wegschrijn), in het Nederlands vaak veldkapel genoemd, is een religieus beeld of afbeelding, meestal onder een kleine beschutting langs een weg, meestal in een landelijk gebied. De term 'wayside shrine' duidt echter alleen op een veldkapel waar géén ruimte is voor een persoon om binnen te treden (zie de nauw verwante categorieën).

- for chapels that you can enter or that offer a small piece of shelter for a person

See also: Category:Oratories.

- for wayside chapels or small chapels that offer enough inside room to pray and theoretically (historically) even hold a small mass

Chapel-shrines are common in for instance Slovenia. Sort of a hybrid between wayside chapels and wayside shrines, they are however shrines rather than chapels. Even though they are built to resemble a small building, they are generally too small to accommodate people and often have only a niche (occasionally, a small altar) to display a depiction of a saint.

- for chapels attached to a building with other purposes.
