Summary/Abstract: RUTHENIAN MANUSCRIPT GOSPEL HOMILIARIES IN POLISH LIBRARIES – ORGANIZATIONAL CHARACTERISTIC MARZANNA KUCZYŃSKA (SZCZECIN) (Summary) In the article the author makes an attempt to describe Ruthenian Gospel homiliaries which survived in Poland and were shaped at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries under the influence of the new tendencies in Renaissance and Baroque preaching. The immediate causes for their creation were the cultural and educational needs of the faithful and the necessity to suppress the impact of reformation propaganda. The author draws attention mainly to the assemblage where the traditional Marian cults and Lord’s feasts were supplemented with moralizing and commemorations of saints. The author points out that the rich typological formula of the Gospel homiliaries decided about liveliness and popularity of the genre as well as about its significant practical values in liturgy and religious self-education.
