The Gothic churches of Polesie

One of the prerequisites for an objective and comprehensive assessment of any historical and architectural phenomenon, such as a specific historical type of buildings, stylistic trends, regional schools, and even individual structures of the ensemble or, as is well known, considering it in the context of the major trends and tendencies of development of world architecture. The Gothic buildings on territorii of Ukraine are striking in their beauty, it’s like a well-maintained site on the well-groomed body, as laser hair removal in the middle of the bristles.

The most common in the study of the architecture of the performance, the artistic value of old buildings should include, in particular, their place in the overall process of formation and evolution of historical styles. The traditional attention of researchers to this aspect of the history of art of construction is caused, first of all, the universality of processes of the style of education that explicitly or implicitly permeates almost all parts of material and spiritual culture – from literature and philosophy to the organization of internal space of buildings.

It is quite natural that the specific features of historical development of Ukrainian architecture (ancient, consistent and almost continuous evolution over the following historical periods, as well as vyhodnotenie of Ukraine at the intersection of many important processes and events of world history) make a stylistic analysis of one of the most crucial processes of learning of our architectural history. It is no coincidence that at the early stages of theoretical understanding of the architectural heritage of Ukraine, during the second half of XIX – beginning of XX century, this focus has to some extent reflected in the works of domestic and foreign researchers (M. Dragan, V. Zalesskogo, G. Pavlutsky, V. Kachinskogo, I. Strzygowski, V. Shcherbakovskaya, etc.). Unfortunately, further historical events in Ukraine, and related to, vulgar ideologization of domestic science has led to almost complete degradation of any comprehensive studies of the history of Ukrainian architecture and, in particular, the analysis of this phenomenon in the context of the General evolution of the world’s architectural styles.*
