Liturgics and related topics on the pages of the magazine Vyšehrad (1945–1948) A contribution to the history of the Czech catholic liturgics after the Second World War

Abstract

The article presents liturgical topics in the magazine Vyšehrad (1945–1948). After the Second World War, a new catholic periodical (weekly, afterwards fortnightly) was founded with the subtitle The Paper for Christian Culture. The magazine included a wide range of topics: reports and comments aimed at the contemporary situation, reflections of cultural events, topics associated with the Church in Czechoslovakia and in the world. Liturgics was a natural – not compulsory, additional or artificial – constituent of almost unvarying sections, since liturgy and closely connected topics (e. g. sacral art) comprised a natural part of the life of the contemporary society. The articles divides liturgics in Vyšehrad into four areas: (1) liturgical articles, (2) reviews and reports, (3) information and questions concerning liturgy, (4) art, architecture, liturgical music. Development and intensification of the topics, some of which tied to pre-war catholic journalism, was not possible due to the short existence of Vyšehrad.
