For this reason, Janusz Rosikon
, the author looked to the most important element that Europe has in common: Christian culture.His
photographs show not only the images of Virgin Mary from different corners of Europe, but also pilgrims lost in prayer and united in their cult of St. Mary.For centuries, Christians have been going on pilgrimages along the same trails to join together in adoration Of the Mother of God.In Europe, still so full of contrasts, they find what cultures, societies and nations have in common.The idea of a united Europe has been voiced for many years.
But this "new" Europe is more than just the economy, common currency or lifted borders.It is primarily our common and religious roots, common Christian tradition and its manifestations, among which the Marian cult plays a role that cannot be underestimated.
