Popis The main aim of the project is to broaden the knowledge about symbols and communication strategies of the early modern history discourse concerning the afterlife. It is concerned to capture the meaning of Purgatory and its visual forms in the 17th and 18th century. It will be realized primarily through inquiry of the iconographic sources – wall pictures, pictures, plastic art, engravings. The project is connected with the problems of the image role in the process of the Counter Reformation – its forms and possibilities of influence. Concerning the methodology, it is assumed that media played the main role in the religious processes during the early modern history because they formed the religious imagination and also served as influential means of indoctrination. The research is focused on artwork semantics, symbolic communication between the living and the dead and on reaction to media.
