- The Baroque of Cracow -

 

At the turn of the centuries, people were wondering: what will new century, the seventeenth since the birth of Christ, bring. Societeies vere transforming, regimes were changing and tensions among religious sects were culminating.  This was the background for the cutbreak of war between the south and the north of the Netherlands. Today’s Holland won its independence as the first bourgeoise monarchy. In England, Cromwell’s revolution secured Anglicantism and republican istitutions. Germany suffered the terrible Thirty Years’ War. France increased its political and cultural importance, at the same time strengthening modern absolutism. In Russia, the ascension to the throne of Peter the Great brought about Renaissance and drew the country closer to Europe. Science, culture and social relations underwent enormous transformations. It was the age of great philosophical systems and the development of natural science. Renaissance and mannerism were substituted by baroque – the style of counterreformation and absolutism, and, of optimism and joy of living. The introduction of this new style in Poland coincided with the beginning of the Vasa dynasty. The dynastic policy of Sigismund III as well as the general configuration of social relations threw Poland into the chaos of century-long wars which greatly undermined its power. Almost immediately after its birth in Roma, baroque was accepted in Poland, and though king Sigismund transferred the capital to Warsaw, Cracow remained a cultural, scientifc and religious centre of the country. Numerous churches were built according to this new style. Baroque entered Cracow in full triumph.
