    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the paper is the identification and description of factors affecting the process of sacralisation as well as the implementation of theoretical concepts in a case study of the Baltic city of Gdynia. It has been assumed that the formation of any religious landscape occurs under two main circumstances: (1) the need to express faith and (2) the opportunity to do it. The former is an internal factor and depends on religiosity, while the latter is closely related to politics, environment, economy and social life. A detailed scheme was constructed around this statement in the form of a mapping sentence adopted from facet theory (Hackett 1995, 2014). Although any religious landscape is a mixture of different factors, by the 1980s the sacralisation of Gdynia was determined mainly by political factors, and later by economic and cultural ones. Furthermore, for three decades some tendencies, typical also for Poland, have also been recognised in Gdynia: monumentalism, privatisation of sacred sites and the “John-Paul-the-Second-isation” of public spaces.

    ABSTRACT: The Influence of Politics on the Erection and Development of Churches, Religious order Communities and Religious Names Given to Public Space in Poland. Case study Gdynia . The article is to illustrate, on the example of a city in northern Poland, the impact of politics on the erection and development of churches, religious orders and religious names given to public space. The history of religious communities in the Baltic city Gdynia, which dates back to the twenties of the previous century, shows that various factors influenced the establishment and development of religious communities. Apart from the natural environment (coastal location of Gdynia) and economic aspects (financial capacity of religious communities) the political environment, especially after the domination of the socialist system in 1945, is considered to be one of the most important factors. In terms of numbers, the development of Roman Catholic churches and order communities as well as places of worship of other religious communities is related to the political events in 1957 and in the eighties. A significant growth in the number of places of worship was noted in Gdynia following political transformations in Eastern Europe in 1989.
