Social and Moral Issues in the Sermons by Konrad Kawalewski, an Enlightenment-Period Preacher from Przemyśl
Languages of publication
Social and moral issues were given remarkable prominence in the discourse of the Age of Enlightenment. They were often tackled in literary works, journalist columns, philosophical and law-making treatises as well as in sermons. These issues were also given much attention by a Reformati preacher from Przemyśl, Fr Konrad Kawalewski (1758-1832). The subject-matter of his sermons was very much in tune with the problems widely discussed by the leading exponents of this genre during the Age of Enlightenment. In this paper its author focuses mostly on such questions as marriage, family relations, the social status of women, games and entertainments and drunkenness, since Fr Kawalewski devoted to them most of his attention as a keen observer and a moral judge. Konrad Kawalewski's sermons have become an inherent part of the homiletic tradition of the city of Przemyśl and they help create an image of the mentality and social life of the society of the Age of Enlightenment.
