The contribution based on an analysis of genre-diverse Latin texts of the 12th century, tries to trace opinions on the acquisition and placement of often expensive liturgical objects in the sacral space. It follows the Arguments, either on the installation of these objects and their use, or on their removal from the liturgical space, with reference to the concept of the senses, especially the highest of them – hearing and sight. Furthermore, the study deals with the question of placing liturgical objects in the sacral space and possible mediation of these objects in the anagogic output of the individual mind of the believer to God through sight on the one hand (liturgical and sacral objects were mediators on this path), through hearing on the other (through a heard biblical text).
