Abstract (Croatian)
Izvan interesa medikohistoričara dosad je ostala sakralna baština Lovranštine, u kojoj središnje mjesto zasigurno ima župna crkva svetog Jurja u Lovranu. Motivirani time, autori pokušavaju ponuditi analizu medicinskih elemenata zastupljenih u toj crkvi. Analiza je provedena na tri dimenzije. Prvo, analizirani su medicinski elementi, napose antropološke karakteristike likova prikazanih na freskama koje spadaju u najstarije i najreprezentativnije freske čitave regije. drugo, izdvojeni su i komentirani glagoljski grafiti koji nose određenu poruku relevantnu za povijest medicine i zdravstvene kulture. Treće, dan je opširan osvrt na ikonografiju svetaca zaštitnika od različitih bolesti, čiji su prikazi (na slikama, oltarima, skulpturama) prisutni u inventaru župne crkve, s posebnim osvrtom na povijesnomedicinsku relevantnost patrona crkve – sv. Jurja. oslanjajući se na već uhodanu metodologiju obrade medicinskih elemenata u domaćoj, ali i stranoj sakralnoj baštini, nastojalo se upotpuniti taj povijesnomedicinski mozaik sa sličnim istraživanjem lovranske župne crkve.
Abstract (English)
For some reason, the sacral heritage of Lovran and its surroundings has escaped the eye of medical historians, until now. seeing that the Parish Church of st George in Lovran holds a central position in this heritage, the authors provide an analysis of medical elements in the church. The analysis has focused on three aspects. The first aspect are medical elements, especially the anthropological features of characters depicted on the frescoes, which belong to the earliest and most representative of the whole region. The second are Glagolithic inscriptions relevant for the history of medicine and health culture. The third is the iconography of patron saints against a variety of diseases (featured on paintings, altars or sculptures), paying particular attention to relevant medical imagery of st George as the church’s patron saint. relying on a well developed method for analysing medical elements in the sacral heritage of Croatia and abroad, the authors seek to fill the gaps in this medical historical mosaic by investigating the parish church of Lovran.
