Zázračná mše sv. Martina z kostela sv. Anny v Přibyslavicích u Třebíče
THE MIRACULOUS MASS OF ST MARTIN OF THE CHURCH OF ST ANNA IN PRIBYSLAVICE NEAR TREBIC
Languages of publication
The pioneering study specifically analyzes the fragments of the medieval omural paintings of the church of St Anna in Pribyslavice discovered at the early 70s of the 20th century. In particular, it focuses on the scene situated above the sanctuary and construes it as the depiction of the miraculous mass of St Martin which is quite rare in the context of Czech and European production respectively. Its attractivity is advanced by the eucharist tone of the scene given by the setting as well as the presence of the subtle figure of the crucified Christ. In the connection with the Legend of St Martin it represents an entirely unique motive, however, it may be considered that in this context it represents a substitution of the absent motive of the revelation of the golden sphere which is mentioned by Sulpicius Severus, the first biographer of St Martin.
