The spiritual song represents one of the essential (musically) literary genres of the 17th-18th c. Slovak literature. Unfortunately, it does not correspond with lower level of the literary research, as we have had still huge deficit in knowledge of domestic hymnographic works - both in manuscript and in published forms. The study is focused on the problem from the literary history that has not yet been clarified . It concerns two anonymous spiritual songs with acrostics that came from about the second half of the 17th century. They are recorded in a Slovak literary document with very complicated heuristic background (manuscript of Peter Benicky's Slovak Verses). The record of the songs seems to be secondary. The authoress of the study proves and clarifies up-to-date information about the songs. She pointed out some connections with other resources as well as contemporary context of the origin of both songs. Hypothetically she considers their generically typological character (penitential and love Christological song) and confessional provenience. She assumes that auctorial anonymity should not have been intentional gesture in that case; the recorder of the texts could know the name of the author and considered him/her for such 'commonly known' that he did not think it would be necessary to write him/her down.
