Languages of publication
Wonderful phenomena are features of religiosity. They include private revelations and charismatic figures of the prophets‑interpreters of the revelations. In Poland, priest Piotr Natanek considers himself to be such a prophet and interpreter of God’s messages. He owns a religious centre near Makow Podhalanski and publishes his messages on the Internet TV. An analysis of one of the series of his sermons concerning the situation of the Church through the prism of the sociology of emotions, allows to extract and categorize emotions conveyed by the prophet from Grzechynia. In the analysed series of sermons “Kościół płonie” („The Church on fire”), Piotr Natanek determines his emotions relating to the fact of being chosen by God and those relating to the situation in the world and in the Church, as well as the emotions of God about the Church, the emotions of priests regarding the God, his emotions regarding the deviations in the Church, the emotions of those renewing the Church and the climate of persecution of those whom God has chosen for special tasks of a revival/renewal. These emotions were grouped according to Jonathan H. Turner’s categories. Based on this typology, the author attempted to assess the emotional impact of Piotr Natanek on his audience.
