Między „świętą prawdą” a herezją – Biblia w Wywodzie jedynowłasnego państwa świata Wojciecha Dembołęckiego
Between ‘Holy Truth’ and Heresy – the Holy Bible in Wywód jedynowłasnego państwa świata by Wojciech Dembołęcki
Languages of publication
This article attempts to explain the role of the Holy Bible in the book by Wojciech Dembołęcki entitled Wywód jedynowłasnego państwa świata. The author does not deny that theories presented in his work were formulated with the help of the Holy Bible. The article answers the following questions: Which fragments of the Holy Bible were cited on the pages of Wywód? To what extent is Dembołęcki faithful to the original when he recalls themes from the Old and New Testaments? How does the Holy Bible help Father Wojciech to prove that Polish has been spoken since the time of Adam and Eve, that the Polish people are the oldest nation and only they have the right to rule the whole world which was given to them by God, and also that all kings will soon respect their authority? We also try to assess Dembołęcki’s attitude: whether he should be considered a heretic or a defender of holy truth.
