Christianity was also preached in Bohemia by priests from the West, using Latin and thus the first Latin school was established in Budec. Only the church remains. It is one of the oldest places still standing today, where young Wenceslas prayed and worshipped with his teachers and fellow pupils. Excavations found sharp instruments called 'stiluses' with which pupils were writing on wax-covered plates.

Legends tell us that the young Wenceslas helped with the harvest of corn and grapes, and that his joy in preparing bread and wine for religious purposes stayed with him into adulthood.
