This paper seeks to explore the processes of Christianisation occurring between the tenth and twelfth centuries in Polabia and Pomerania. It looks at a large number of sources, which can be re-analysed to yield fresh data. The issue is particularly important for the research on the conversion of Slavic peoples.
The purpose of this paper is to present the short history of the Order of Saint Paul the First Hermit which was following the spiritual lifestyle of the „first hermit”, Saint Paul of Thebes († 342). The paper starts with the description of a foundation of the order in the first half of the 13th century, when hermits started to live in hermitages in the Patach Mountains in the Diocese of Pécs and in the Pilis Mountains in the south-east of Esztergom, and in its major part it focuses on the later development of the Pauline monasteries in the territory of the medieval Hungarian Kingdom.
The article presents the history of contacts between Georgia and Western Europe as well as Georgia and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth between the mid-15th and the end of the 18th centuries. In the article, the role of the Georgian diplomatic missions is emphasized in the process of forging anti-Osman coalitions.
The article’s goal is to highlight burial rituals and funerary services in the Polish community in Lvov in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries as the issues are rarely discussed in academic research. Poles (who prevailed in the city) were typically Roman Catholics. The funerary ritual was modelled by the Catholic tradition. In the last decades of the 19th century, funeral parlours emerged in Lvov to render services to the city’s affluent and poor inhabitants alike.
The article shows the three aspects of research on the history of Slavonic studies in Poland: the developmental trends in Polish historiography, the scale of interest in the Slavs living in Poland and the position of the other Slavic nations in the Polish historiography.
