Title: Dielo Juraja Tranovského ako prienik hudby, poézie a teológie
Author: Adriana Grešová

Abstract: From his young years Georgius Tranoscius (1592–1637) was active in the fields of literature, music, and theology. We have written evidence about Tranoscius’ composition of sacred songs and Latin odes from an early period of his life. His collection of odes Odarum Sacrarum Sive Hymnorum was very probably coming into existence continuously in the course of his life. Horace’s antique odes served him as text models. The chants are worked out in homophonic texture. Tranoscius is the most prolific author of sacred songs in the then Central-European Slavic environment. For the determination of the date of the hymnal Cithara Sanctorum’s origination it is necessary to take into consideration also secondary sources; it was presumably compiled in the period 1620–1636. The influence of the Bible of Kralice is also apparent. Besides bibles Tranoscius was educated also on Luther’s treatises. Regarding the melodies in the hymnal Tranoscius very probably copied them from a template, however, no particular hymnbook is mentioned by him as a model.
