AnotationThe project focuses on pilgrimage songs in the 17th ?19th centuries from the culturally open area of Moravia and Czech Silesia, for there is a lack of complex literary-historical rendering of this material at present. The main sources (publication media) are broadsides and pilgrimage handbooks. The intended outcome of the project is a monograph which also contains a richly commented edition of selected texts. An interdisciplinary approach will be adopted, yet a literary-historical perspective will have a predominant role.
