Graffti w malowidłach ortodoksyjnych

Mirosław Piotr Kruk


Grafitti, i.e. engraved inscriptions left at different times in public places, often unfor- tunately on objects of great significance for world culture and heritage, till now constitute a somewhat marginalized problem, possibly treated as meaningless acts of vandalism of different periods. A brief review of grafitti teams made at different times and in various orthodox temples of Central and Eastern Europe (Novgorod, Kiev, Polotsk, Grodno) was carried out with an attempt to pre-classify them and draw conclusions of a more general nature, as well as in relation to intriguing monuments from Poland (Krakow, Sando- mierz, Wislica, Lublin). Particularly intriguing is the presence in the orthodox paintings of Latin inscriptions, recorded in different eras for various reasons, primarily those rela- ted to modern times, i.e. in the 17th-18th centuries. The intensification of the application of Latin-Polish inscriptions in seventeenth-century temples is parallel to the mass occur- rence of Cyrillic inscriptions in orthodox churches in the XI–XII century, which could have been the result of the particularly lush development of the literary culture of both environments in the indicated eras. Separate attention was devoted to attempts to blur the inscriptions, especially in the case of Lublin paintings, sometimes crucial for reading the foundation’s circumstances, and the these actions on the inscriptions arouse constant emotions due to attributing political motives to them.
