New sacral constructions in the normalization period

Implementation: 2017–2020

Head of project: Michal Sklenář

Description of project: The project focuses on new sacral buildings of the Roman Catholic Church in the Czech lands. It highlights concrete social practice in places where new Catholic chapels and churches were constructed in Communist Czechoslovakia. The introductory study will also put the aforementioned construction activities into a broader social context and into the context of Czech church history and general church history (the Second Vatican Council and the subsequent liturgical reform).
