After 1397 they slowed down the construction and the church has never been finished . The church was planned to be a major building as it is today.
The vault of the church was reconstructed in 1603 in the Renaissance style by the new order that had become the owners of the place - the Fransiscans.

Saint James ´s Church
".................Pythagoras entered a smithy and he heard the banging sounds of four hammers. According to the hermetic legend he had the hammers weighed, and discovered that their weight corresponded with their precise proportions, six, eight, nine, and twelve, which corresponded with the 5th and 4th musical octaves. From this example alchemist Robert Fludd deduced a whole inner structure combining architecture with music. He discovered a whole range of correspondences which characterise geometric proportions of so-called "right" construction.
The Church of St. James is unique among Prague´s holy temples, it has an unusual nave, which distantly echoes the principles of "right" construction, which provides excelent interior acoustics.
The pipe organ in St. James´s Church is the work of Adam Stark of Loket. It dates back to 1702-1705, and os one of the most excellent instruments of its kind, not only because of its considerable size, be because of its majestic sound.
The musical masters at the Church of St. James were the composers Bohuslav Matej Cernohorsky and Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), Antonin Dvorak composed here one of his most famous masses - the world famous "Stabat Mater"............"

"..........A famous legend is linked to the Church of St. James, near the entrance on the right side the dried husk of an arm still hangs, the arm of a thief. It is said that he tried to steal a statue of the Virgin Mary, as well as some valuable pearls, but was caught by the statue itself, when it came to life. It is said that it caught him by the arm and held him, till guards arrived..............."
