MARIAN MOTIFS IN TRADITIONAL GENRES: LEGEND SONGS AND PAINTINGS ON GLASS (Marianske motivy v tradicnych zanroch: Legendicke piesne a malba na skle)
Languages of publication
The Marian motifs in legend songs and in paintings on glass result from the complex relations established by the model, actual style context, subjective experience and expressive means of the medium. They are associated with the active reception of the Marian cult in a traditional environment as well as with the reflection of biblical and apocryphal themes. They are integral part of narratives (legends-tales) and are also formed into iconographic types (pictorial representations). Besides a narrow circle of parallel themes and pictorial types they are only complementary in both genres (media); complementation is also the way how to render them. They are components of folk belief as the two modes of formulating religious images.
