Summary/Abstract: Literature is one of those areas of human activity which functions within the culture of memory. It is indeed one of the means of creating memory – many narratives are concerned with the way in which individuals and communities remember and forget, as well as the way in which they forge their own identity. Modern literature has made the exploration of memory patterns one of is most important themes. The paper constitutes an attempt to analyse the literary images of the cathedral in connection with the patterns of individual and communal memory in Maja Jurkowska’s novel Katedra in the context of Polish and German memory discourse.
