Book as a symbol in the collections of the Marian narratives by Afanasii Kalnofoyskyi, Ioanykyi Galiatovskyi and Danylo (Dymytiy) Tuptalo
In the article are investigated the means and the tools of constructing the image of a book in four collections of the Marian narratives about miracles: Teraturgema by Afanasiy Kalnofoyskyi, The New Heaven and The Needful Treasury by loanykiy Galiatovskyi, and The Bedewed Fleece by Danylo (Dymytriy) Tuptalo. The main significance is given to the structure- and the meaning-making role of a symbol in the baroque text. It is clarified that all four books are built on the base of the Marian names, each of them develops with the smaller symbolic images. There is emphasized on the didacticism of the texts and the possibility of theosis through the word that is represented, in particular, in the motif of perception of book and image of a text as an opened spiritual treasury. Special attention is paid to the metaphors of the readability of the world and a book as a symbol of the universe.
