AbstractThe article demonstrates a broader context of the renewal of lay Catholic liturgics in the Czech lands in the first half of the 19th century. The first section is based on a contribution by Jan Horsky and develops the theme of ‘the five phenomena of transformation’ in the long 19th century (1789–1914) with respect to general and Czech Church history. The phenomena of secularisation, re-Christianization, spiritualization, the disenchantment of the world and rationalisation are addressed here. The Roman Catholic Church searched for answers to these phenomena also with the aid of handbooks which were supposed to introduce laypersons to the basics of liturgics and related topics in an understandable way. The second section discovers theological connections of the publishing of liturgics handbooks within the sensus fidei concept. It distinguishes between the individual aspect (sensus fidei fidelis) and the ecclesial aspect (sensus fidei fidelium). The acceptance and high popularity of liturgics can be interpreted as a manifestation of the sensus fidei.
