STREDOVEKÉ SAKRISTIE – K PROBLÉMU FUNKCIÍ A ARCHITEKTONICKÉHO RIEŠENIA (PRÍKLAD SLOVENSKA)
Sacristies in the middle ages – functions and architectural design (case of Slovakia)
Languages of publication
The research of medieval sacral buildings has been confronted with the question, why there are remains of high-quality mural paintings, consecration crosses, altars and tabernacles in the sacristies of some churches, or why some sacristies are characterised by unusual construction forms. These cases don´t seem to correspond to our current perception of sacristies. Yet, they indicate that medieval sacristies were not service premises but also could have other purposes, which were almost forgotten and only gradually became a subject of systematic research. The paper is the first to summarise basic information on medieval sacristies in the territory of Slovakia.
