Summary/Abstract: The theory about Poland as the bulwark of Western civilisation in the Eastern Europe has a long history. In Polish historical and political thought it goes back to the fifteenth century. What did make this concept revive in the reborn Poland, giving it a new dimension that livened up Polish political thought and gaining its advocates from among historians? How it was understood in the new, reborn Poland? Is it possible to find its supporters among foreigners?
