Dolejší, Barbora ; Ebelová, Ivana (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
This thesis is a contribution to the research of cryptography at the time of the early modern period. Its aim is to analyze coded correspondence found among other documents of the War Office of Matthias Gallas. First of all, the number of the coded documents is compared to the whole paperwork of Gallas's War Office to identify the ratio of encrypted writings. I also analyze sample letters to demonstrate kinds of ciphers that were used in military sphere during the Thirty Year's War. The sample of the coded letters is chosen in order to present correspondents of different social ranks even though the majority comes from commanders. I drew attention to a topic of letters intercepted by an enemy as well. I outline a content of a few chosen letters although the emphasis is mainly put on palaeography. Studied correspondence falls under the first two leadership periods of Matthias Gallas. A list of all encrypted documents is attached to this thesis as well.

Landscape Composition of Count Frantisek Josef Schlik and the "Landscape Creation" around the Year 1700
Rychnová, Lucie ; Biegel, Richard (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
This thesis describes the landscape composition of Czech Count Frantisek Josef Slik (Frantz Joseph Schlik, 1656-1740) and attempts to define the influences and principles which were involved in the formation of the landscape in the manors of Kopidlno, Stare Hrady and Velis- Voksice, now in the Czech Republic, during the life of the aristocrat. Frantisek Josef Schlik ruled the manors for over 60 years and during that time he was responsible for many architectural works with considerable landscape-forming and urbanistic potential. A series of visually interlinked chapels was erected in the Velis-Voksice manor. This series included the meierhof with a little palace in Voksice. This landscape composition has been discussed especially as regards its formal design, but its connection to the Count's motivation has been less well researched, as has been the broader social and, especially, religious context in the area. Another aspect that has been put aside, or not perceived within the context of the manorial landscape, were other structures which Frantisek Josef Schlik built or which were of essential importance for the activities in the manor. These structures, meierhofs, were also significant landscape components. This dissertation first attempts to provide a biography of Frantisek Josef Schlik,...
