Then the main subject of the project will be linked to a wider context of the Central European integration processes in the early and high middle ages - from there results the necessity of secondary studies on Central European long term basic structures and framework developments from the 10th to the mid 13th century, as well as of historiographic context-studies to the reign of King Otakar Přemysl II.

Decanal church of St. Bartholomeus: The picture of decanal church on the background of the evolution of the medieval Pelhřimov
Peltan, Václav ; Šmied, Miroslav (advisor) ; Czumalo, Vladimír (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the question about the beginning of the town Pelhřimov which belonged to Řečice the estate of Prague bishops as well as the development of religious buildings in this town. In the old pre-location settlement existed from the middle 12th century the church of St. Vitus, to which in the early 14th century was added the church of Virgin Mary In The Walls (during the Reformation was its patrocinium changed to patrocinium St. Bartholomew the Apostle). After a confusing period of the Hussite revolt and the subsequent reorganization of the Church in Bohemia the church of St. Vitus in the suburbs began to slowly losing its importance as a church of Virgin Mary within the walls fully developed and became a the parish church, later decanal. Based on my own research, unpublished studies and reconstructive models I am presenting the form of decanal church in Pelhřimov in time of founding, at the turn of the 13th and 14th century in which slight changes remained until the mid-16th century. The construction phase is often neglected in the literature, and it is not yet sufficiently investigated nor targeted. This bachelor thesis is supplementing the gap in knowlege of Pelhřimov's decanal church. Keywords Pelhřimov, decanal church, the 14s century, Middle Ages, early gothic, basilica
