Abstract

The session is dedicated to the research about the inspirations of Order’s Rules in architecture. Kinga Łaciak attempts to find a definition of Dominican architecture and the common features in their churches and convents. Agata Korba studies the foundations built on the set of crosses and their origins, the origins understood as the rule which was obligatory in the Cistercian community. Joanna Żywina examines the features of the Cistercian churches in Lesser Poland and their spiritual and symbolic meanings.
