(Czech title: Slovo a obraz v renesancnim cestopise Krystofa Haranta z Polzic a Bezdruzic Cesta z Kralovstvi ceskeho do Zeme Svate). Travels to the Holy Land are the theme of a specific type of travel-book with regard to their sacred mission. Their transformations are demonstrated on a comparison of the Russian medieval pilgrimage described by Prior Daniil and the most famous Czech Renaissance travel-book by the nobleman, diplomat and musician Krystof Harant of Polzice and Bezdruzice (1598). His work is notable for a number of his own illustrations, related to medieval miniatures that accompanied the most popular medieval travel book Milion by Marco Polo or the equally popular medieval bestiaries. However, they have significant information value, enriching the semantics of the text.
