This collection of studies on the pre-Reformation and Reformation culture of Bohemia and Moravia deals with the issue of the confessional culture of Bohemia and Moravia in the late Middle Ages and the early modern age. It presents the issue of confessional art through individual in-depth analytical studies of individual works or groups of works. A substantial part of the work is devoted to the visual arts, but it also considers liturgical music and architecture. A positive feature of the publication is that it examines the works produced by various confessional tendencies and places them next to each other, thus allowing the reader a comparative view of the theme being studied. The work is divided into three thematic sections, dealing with (1) general aspects of the study of Reformation culture in the Czech lands, (2) analyses of individual phenomena or fields of Reformation art, and (3) the question of tolerance and intolerance, as it is projected into specific works of art.
