K PATROCÍNIU KOSTOLA SV. MARGITY ANTIOCHIJSKEJ V KOPČANOCH
On the churchpatron St. Margaret of Antioch in Kopčany
Languages of publication
The study is dedicated to one of the two apostles of the Christian faith amongst the Slavs – St. Methodius (813/815 – 885). Its subject is a detailed examination of St. Margaret of Antioch’s church (in Kopčany) protectorate located in the region of Skalica; neighbour to Morava county, Czech Republic. This religious architecture is dated, on the basis of the archeological finds and artistic analysis, to the second half of the 9th cent. The analogical age of the earliest church with the same sanctification is confirmed in Transdanubia’s historical documentation (Conversio Bagoariorum et Carantanorum) – near Balaton lake – on the territory of contemporary Hungary. A massive spread of St. Margaret’s cult took place in Slovakia during the 13th – 14th cent.
