Sensualism belongs to the distinctive characteristics of Baroque literature. It appears in arelatively broad spectrum of genres and text strategies. The article deals with the genre of meditation in Czech literature, especially with the notable influence of the Jesuit spirituality (Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola) on the Czech Baroque books in the 17th and 18th centuries (F. Kadlinský, Zlatá ctností kniha, 1662; V. Martinedes, Uzda duchovní, 1672; B.H. Bilovský, Druhé rozvažování postní, 1721). These works cultivated private spirituality and were intended for individual reading. The Jesuit conception is based on sensual effects, especially mental exercises of the visual imagination (the visual art as amodel for literature). For this Baroque texts used refined rhetorical and stylistic strategies (description, enumeration, parable).
