    The Votive Church (votive from the Latin votum = vowed sacrifice, vows) is a church that was built as a sign of thanksgiving for salvation from an emergency or with a request for the fulfillment of a specific desire, and sometimes atonement.

The votive churches also include so-called thank-you churches.
