Summary/Abstract: The article presents the stages of creating thematic dictionaries starting from the first half of the 16th century to the 21st century. The author emphasizes the relationship between the macrostructure of dictionaries and both their functions and the division of concepts and/or methods of categorizing „reality”. The latter is reflected in the number and hierarchy of thematic groups. In Polish lexicography, thematic dictionaries were not popular, although European lexicography often used them. Metalexicography became the subject of reflection only at the beginning of the 21st century at the time when the work on the Great Dictionary of Polish and the conceptual system in the Conceptual Dictionary of Old Polish began.
