The essence of sacred art, especially of modern one, can be captured primarily via an analysis of religious and artistic phenomena, in which their visual realisation is only one of the elements. The paper discusses modern examples of realisation of Stations of the Cross in different spatial and symbolic contexts. The aim of the study was to present the method of arrangement of the sacred interior and different forms of sacralisation of outer space through the creation of a set of Passion compositions associated with both paraliturgical services and individual devotion. The paper presentes projects by: Adam Brincken and Maciej Zychowicz in the Church of Christ the King in Jarosław, Bronisław Chromy on the grounds of the Church of the Transfiguration in Królówka, Jan Siek in the Church of St Maximilian Kolbe in Oświęcim and Jacek Kucaba in Bydgoszcz.

Keywords: Maciej Zychowicz, Bronisław Chromy, Jan Siek, Jacek Kucaba, Stations of the Cross, modern Polish calvaries
