The unique spatial system of the medieval parish church in Kassa (now Košice, in Slovakia) induced strong debates in the literature, and some scholars called the master behind it a bungler. The reconstruction of the church at the end of the 19th century changed the floor plan entirely, with the result of a more regular arrangement.Using the drawings about the state of the church the medieval system is reconstructable in 3D. With the help of this 3D-model a structural analysis is possible.According to the spatial analysis and the structural calculations, the former unique layout of the church was the result of conscious planning.
