Abstract

Three papers of this session try to study a particular problem: renewal of art understood as a return to the beginning. Tomasz Węcławowicz discovers the imaginative ‘Christian beginning’ of Cracow in the urban space created bewtween 10th and 13th century. Justyna Kuska researches the return to the Middle Age in art of th 20th century. Artur Karpacz studies the exceptional case of ‘gothic’ church built around 1600. In all these studies the ‘ideal beginning’ is the important factor of artistic creation.
