The Sigismund Chapel, a work of Bartolomeo Berrecci from the years 1515-1533, holds a very important position in the history of Polish art. In the Stalinist understanding the Sigismund Chapel presented a unified work. Everything that reminded of decorative elements (especially the figures of saints) has been removed from the analysis, or at least suppressed of their Christian testimony. In this way interpreted chapel may become an expression of realism disposed of progressive socio-economic development and thus a "home" product without medieval asceticism and religiosity. In Kalinowski’s text “The artistic and ideological contents of Sigismund Chapel” the work was taken out of the Stalinist ideology and brought back the Latin culture of Europe.
