Description of contents:
In Poland the Roman Style is the oldest kind of architecture existing. It is connected with the initial phase of our state’s foundation, this which it is featured by rather crude and simplified form- usually we come cross small churches of one space covered with the hooked roof, with straightly closed presbytery. The Roman Style Architecture in Poland was arising under the German and Czech influences. The beginning of Roman Art’s development took place after the monarchy’s restitution by the King Kazimierz Odnowiciel (1038-1058). In XI century, there were founded still remaining to a small degree cathedrals: in Poznan, the second cathedral in Gniezno and the second cathedral in Cracow featured b two parted chorus place, the churches of Benedictines in Tyniec and Mogilno, the St. Andrew’s Collegiate in Cracow.

Description of how the website can be used with the students::
The website makes the students’ observations much deeper than in the language of the theory, they can associate the symbols and allegories of the sacral motives into the architectural and artistic vision pretty fluently.
The group adapts the vision of the architecture of that period to their own expectations and background consciousness as regards the attributive notion of the epoch.
