Abstract. Today, while constructing new churches and the restoring the old ones, historical research on the creation and regulation of the environmental design of the Galicia cult buildings is relevant.
The purpose of the study is to initiate thorough research on the role of sacred art in the development of the environmental design of the religious buildings of Galicia on the material of the late XIX – early XX century.
The methodology of the study is systematic, authentic, historicist, and logical. The author examined hundreds of complexes of sacral buildings in Galicia. Synthesis of sacral art and design played an important role in the creation and regulation of the environmental design of the religious buildings of this region. Nevertheless, the end of the nineteenth – the beginning of the twentieth century is a period of elevation in the national culture’s development of the Ukrainians of Galicia. These are interiors of churches in Lviv, Tarnivtka, Drohobych, Vorokhta and other cities and villages of the region made with imitation of the historical epochs and national style.
Inheritance of historical styles, such as Ukrainian baroque and folk art traditions, played an important role in the spiritual life of the Ukrainians of Galicia.
They became one of the important factors in their national self-identification and in the revival of cultural life at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
