Prasa w systemie komunikacji w obrębie polskich zgromadzeń zakonnych: przykłady historyczne i współczesne
Press in the communication system of Polish religious congregations and orders: historical and modern examples
The author analyses journals and magazines edited and published within Polish religious congregations and orders in the past and nowadays to define the function of intra-congregational media. They fulfill the need of internal relations as well as spiritual, social and group education and formation; help create social bonds among the members of the congregation; and boost self-esteem through prominent exclusiveness. The author based his investigation on questionnaires and on research conducted in several dozen religious congregations and orders in Poland.
