IV International Biennale of Minatures

We would like to invite young creative students for participation in the IVth International Biennale of Miniatures, Włocławek 2016.

The IVth International Biennale of Miniatures is devoted to origination of Polish state in the 1050th anniversary of Christianity adoption from the Czech Republic by our ruler Mieszko. We would like to acquaint students of fine arts schools not only from Poland but also from foreign countries with our rich history and of course, encourage them to participation in this project.  The personal baptism of Mieszko I was a conscious choice of Christianity for the entire state, which was formed with the unification of many tribes. The state, between the Oder and Bug, was varied and its inhabitants professed various pagan religions. In 965 Mieszko married the Czech Princess Dobrawa, and thus he gained an ally against a formidable neighbour from the Baltic Sea, the Wielecki Union. Gallus Anonymus, a twelfth-century chronicler, claims that Dobrawa is credited as a major influence on Mieszko's decision to accept Poland Baptism. The ceremony took place on the 14 of April 966 but the exact location of Poland Baptism is still disputed by historians, with the cities of Poznań, Gniezno and Ostrów Lednicki being the most likely sites. According to medieval customs, the entire court was christened along with the Prince. Mieszko I and his court were not poured with water only on the head, but they were immersed in a special baptismal basin. The Baptism of Poland and the creation of an independent bishopric in Poznań aligned Poland with the Christian countries of Europe and joined with Western Christian culture circle. Mieszko I became equal to other Christian rulers and has strengthened his power over his subjects. The clergy began to arrive to Poland and through their knowledge of Latin the ruler could communicate with foreign countries. Monasteries and churches became centres of the intellectual and artistic life. By this phenomena the society began to consolidate and the awareness of the Polish nation and establishment in the community of the Church and Europe increased. The adoption of one religion conducived to unification of our state and its social strengthening. The celebration of the Jubilee of 1050-anniversary of Poland Baptism will show us how much of this great and historical heritage has stood the test of time.

We would be grateful if young people could participate in the IVth International Biennale of Miniatures.


With best regards,
