Popis The goal of this paper is to explore the possibilities and advantages of spatial visual analysis to answering or exploring a hypothesis set by the historical study of religions. The content was based on the GEHIR project that studies the history of ancient Graeco-Roman religions through innovative methods used in the study of the dynamics of complex systems. At the beginning of the paper, three case studies are identified and their hypotheses and input datasets are described. Subsequently, relevant spatial methods are proposed and implemented within a web-based map application that is deployed online (gehir.phil.muni.cz/map). Notwithstanding certain constraints, the new possibilities and advantages of using visual analysis in historical research bring a unique view on the phenomenon. This could open new discussions and contribute to the spreading of geographic approaches to the overall knowledge of historians.
