Regnum defendo ense et alis this stricto. Malbork in Royal Prussia – exhibition catalogue, Scientific editing: Dr. Rafał Panfil, Artur Dobry, Malbork 2021
The exhibition “Regnum defendo ense et alis stricto. Malbork in Royal Prussia” is accompanied by an artfully published catalogue. It deepens the theme of the second part of the exhibition project, tentatively called “The Malbork Triptych”, which is intended to cover the entire history of the castle, i.e. the medieval period (13th–15th century), modern (15th–18th century) and the most recent (18th–20th century).
The second part of the triptych, i.e. the exhibition “Regnum defendo ense et alis this stricto / I defend the kingdom with a drawn sword and cover with my wings. Malbork in Royal Prussia” was to be accompanied by a scientific conference devoted to broadly understood issues related to the history of Royal Prussia and Malbork in the late medieval and early modern periods. Unfortunately, the difficult pandemic situation in the country made it impossible to hold the conference in May 2020. The unpublished papers were collected and prepared for publication as the first of the volumes accompanying the exhibition. The authors of the texts are scientists from universities from all over the country and employees of the Castle Museum in Malbork. It contains a number of studies, diverse in content, supplementing the knowledge about Malbork and the Malbork Castle against the background of the political history and culture of Royal Prussia.
The catalog published by the Publishing House of the Castle Museum in Malbork can be purchased in shops on the premises of the Museum and online
Pictures of Prague. Bohemian stone sculpture of the fine style around 1400 in the Teutonic state in Prussia – exhibition catalog, Monika Jakubek-Raczkowska, Monika Czapska, Malbork 2021
The exhibition Bilde von Prage. A Czech stone sculpture of the fine style around 1400 in the Teutonic state in Prussia was organized at the Castle Museum in Malbork in the fall of 2020 as part of a research project carried out in cooperation with partner institutions in 2018-2021. A group of high-class stone sculptures from the area of the former State of the Teutonic Knights, created in stonemason’s workshops in Prague and imported to Prussia at the end of the 14th century, is presented. The title of the exhibition referred to the only source mention of Prague imports to the Teutonic state around 1400, preserved in the Malbork treasury book (Tresslerbuch). The exhibition placed works of Czech provenance in the context of native woodcarving of that time and raised the problem of their later impact and reception in local sculpture.
The catalog contains essays introducing the assumptions of the exhibition and the issue of the fine style in visual arts around 1400, as well as notes discussing all the exhibited artefacts – in an arrangement consistent with the narrative adopted at the exhibition.
The exhibition Bilde von Prage. A Czech stone sculpture of the fine style around 1400 in the Teutonic state in Prussia is part of a research project aimed at examining – in terms of material, technique, form and function – a group of several stone sculptures from the area of the former Teutonic state, which in stylistic studies are associated with the artistic community of the Czech Republic. Its title refers to the only source mention of Czech imports to the territory of the Order’s state, preserved in the Teutonic treasury book (Tresslerbuch), and the main thread is the problem of the appearance in Prussia, over the last two decades of the 14th century, of a group of limestone sculptures of high artistic class , representing the beautiful style in the Czech edition.
