ABSTRACT
The work deals with medieval wall paintings in the Church of All Saints in Ludrová-Kút located in the Liptov region. The author explores the design and painting decorations of the church, in particular, using the iconographical analysis. In addition he attempts to understand the function of the medieval wall paintings at the time of its creation and its use in subsequent centuries. In the Church of All Saints are preserved several layers of wall paintings, starting from the second half of the 13th century (consecration crosses) and ending in the 16th century. However, the most important is the large Christological Cycle in the presbytery, dated by the author to the period of 1420-1430. The author does not analyze all picture scenes; rather he focuses more on the ones that are unique, in particular ones regarding iconographic content. The study brings new findings, in particular, in the case of the so-called Eucharistic Triptych on the northern nave of the church (around 1400 A.D.).
