Languages of publication
The Jubilee years of the Catholic Church, which were an element of its strategy in the battle against infidels, form an extralingual context of onomastic issues discussed in the article. The study covers first names occurring in Poznań during the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation, thus in the period witnessing the disintegration of Western Christianity. The author attempts to define the influence of forms of religious life characteristic of the jubilee years (the veneration of Saints, pilgrimages) on shaping the Catholic paradigm of first names. She considers Christian first names documented in Poznań-based sources as an element of religious (didactic, informational and paraliterary) discourse of that time, dominated by the Catholic Church.
