On 18 February 2022, during the most recent seminar held at the Research Centre for Armenian Culture in Poland, Fr Marek Miławicki OP gave a talk entitled Sadok Barącz OP: Portrait of a Scholar, which stimulated a lively discussion. The presentation that accompanies it appears below. Fr Miławicki – theologian, historian, and vice director of the Dominican Institute of History – is preparing a doctoral thesis on the figure of Fr Sadok Barącz at the Pedagogical University of Kraków. The histories of the Dominican Order and the Armenian Catholic church in the Polish lands and in eastern Europe lie at the centre of his research interests. He is the author of a book on the missions Polish Dominicans undertook in China in 1937–1952.
