Forming of Artists' Priesthood
After the first Week of Christian Culture in 1975, the need for more frequent intellectual exchange occurred. In 1976 in St. Anne Church in Warsaw Artists' Priesthood was formed. The group consisted of artists, writers, thinkers and people interested in modern art and critical thinking. The Priesthood was quite inclusive and did not restrict the invitation to the believers only. During the meetings the guests discussed some current cultural and social problems – sometimes in some truly passionate disputes.
Priesthood's members every year prepared Weeks of Christian Culture, where they invited artists of various disciplines and environments. After 1976 Artists' Priesthoods were formed in numerous dioceses throughout the country. They are still important ground for intellectual debates, although nowadays they focus on more religious considerations than during socialist times.
