In the Name of Christ-Selected Thoughts of the Members of the Lesser Czech Evangelical Churches in the Period 1890-1940
Mašek, Tomáš ; Horský, Jan (advisor) ; Nešpor, Zdeněk (referee)
The work focuses on the specification of the specificities of the thinking of some smaller evangelical churches in the territory of Bohemia in the period 1890-1940. Specifically, this is the Brethren Unity of Chelčický (Baptist), the Unity of Czech Brethren (formerly Reformed Free Church) and the Evangelical Methodist Church. The focus of the interpretation is to introduce the construction of confessional identity based on the relationship to the past and the specific interpretation of the personalities and events that shaped the tradition from which these churches were based. Another element forming the identity of the members of these churches was their attitude to the modern secularization tendencies against which they stood in opposition. Last but not least, their confessional consciousness determined their definition of other forms of piety. The aim of the work was to provide, based on the study of the published written sources left by the members of these three churches, a comparison and characterization of their way of viewing certain subjects through their religious beliefs.

Historicity as Ontological and Phenomenological Problem
Klouda, Jiří ; Kouba, Pavel (advisor) ; Čapek, Jakub (referee) ; Horský, Jan (referee)
The first part of the thesis deals with the constitution of the modern conception of history as an independent ontological region, which is characterized by its reflexivity, i.e. the same word history does mean both action and knowledge, information about it. From this perspective, attention is paid to the main stages of development of historiography. We start with constitution of the modern conception of history in the Enlightenment and its philosophical explanation in Kant (§ 2). Followed by an analysis of the historical method developed by Droysen, being shown how the methodological limitations of this approach were associated with understanding the historical reflexivity as identity, inherited from idealistic philosophy (§ 3). A rejection of the sociological approaches in historiography refers to fundamental differences in the conception of the relationship of knowledge and action in both types of disciplines (§ 4). Great attention is paid to the renaissance of historiography attaching to enforcement cultural-anthropological paradigm, in which it was seen as a solution of problems connected with historicism and social science approach (§ 5). The second part concentrates on the analysis of the basic philosophical assumptions of cultural anthropology. Exploration leads to the establishment of the...
Intellectual History in the Context of Czech and European Historiography in 19th and 20the Century
Čtvrtník, Mikuláš ; Beneš, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Středová, Veronika (referee) ; Horský, Jan (referee)
The main thematic scope and basis of the PhD thesis is the specific movement in the historiography called duchové dějiny (in English partly misleading translation intellectual history) in the form, in which it was developed in German speaking lands as Geistesgeschichte, and in the Czech historiography as duchové dějiny outlined by Zdeněk Kalista. In the PhD thesis duchové dějiny is put into the wide context of the development of historical thinking and methodology in the 19th and 20th century. The PhD thesis treats the subdiscipline of duchové dějiny in many perspectives and at different levels and thematically is not enclosed by the boundaries of the duchové dějiny itself. The duchové dějiny is here in a way an optics through which one line of historiography and historical thinking in the 19th and 20th century is observed, treated and interpreted. The PhD thesis also aims to connect the history and its methodology with the archivistics and archival theory. In this way proposes the thesis certain solutions. Nowadays, duchové dějiny belongs rather to the marginal movements or subdisciplines in the historiography in the Czech and German speaking lands, contrary to intellectual history in Anglophone areas. In spite of this the PhD thesis tried to show, that the duchové dějiny is still alive,...
