Abstract

The pilgrimage in Carpathians began there in the 11 th c., and its boom was observed in the 18 th c. - over 160 centres. The development of those migrations was often deformed by political conditions - i.e. partitions of Poland since 1772, Austrian occupation in the 1772-1919 period, decades after 1945. Nowadays there are over 130 centres of pilgrimage, of which 82% have the local scope, 15% the regional one, and 3% the surparegional one. About 314 of them are connected with the marial worship. The basic Carpathian centres are: Kalwaria Zebrzydowska - the second greatest centre in Poland, after that of Czestochowa - of the international importance, Ludzmierz, Tuchów and Kalwaria Paclawska - the supraregional scope.
