Summary/Abstract: The Pauline Fathers’ Church of the Holy Spirit in Warsaw is representative of the late-17thcentury tradition of Warsaw architecture, mostly created by the milieu of North Italian masters working in Poland. The typical features of such projects are the slim facade with two side towers, and the basilical organization of the interior - called Warsaw basilica. It was defined by its compositional compactness and the extent of space integration. What makes the Church of the Holy Spirit different from other Warsaw churches of that time is that the history of its architectural origin and construction is recorded perfectly in the Archives of the Polish Province of the Pauline Order at Jasna Góra. The most important and the most abundant sources of information concerning the artistic and construction-related details can be found in two accountancy book for the church construction for the years 1707-1729 (AJG 468 i AJG 471). The construction of the Warsaw church for the Pauline Fathers was initiated by Fr. Innocenty Pokorski (1656-1734), responsible for numerous Paulines’ construction projects. At a later stage of the construction project, he was accompanied by Fr. Konstanty Moszyński – Provincial Superior of the Polish Paulines, a well-known patron of art and founder of numerous artistic projects.
