The historical and archaeological importance of travel accounts made by Russian pilgrims to the Near East from the 12th to 19th centuries.
Ježek, Václav ; Tumis, Stanislav (advisor) ; Boček, Pavel (referee) ; Nykl, Hanuš (referee)
This work deals with a theme, which is increasingly becoming popular amongst scholars. It is a theme dealing with Russian pilgrims and travellers, who visited the areas of the Middle East, especially those places, such as Constantinople, the Holy Land, Mt. Athos and others. Under the designation Russian pilgrims we do not mean individuals belonging to a specific ethnic group, but individuals who were related to Russia understood as a political formation and state. The contacts between the south and Russia, have important consequences for the development of Russia itself, its culture, identity and history. This is also the case for the Middle East, where the contacts with Russia determined to a large extent the development and character of this area. The Russian contacts with the south should be primarily viewed in terms of the Byzantine-Russian context. These were based on cultural influences and on a shared faith and identity. The cultural and religious contacts were enabled by travelling individuals, who travelled without and with a specific goal. In the context of these journeys the prime motivation was a religious one, when a pilgrimage to such areas as Constantinople, Mt. Athos, the Holy Land, helped to build a religious identity in Russia, since before the fall of Constantinople, religion...

The Thesis: The Antioxidant and Hormonal Effects of Ginseng Panax on Lifespan and Stress Resistance in Caenorhabditis elegans Made by: Václav Ježek The antioxidant and hormonal effect of Panax ginseng on lifespan and stress resistance in C. elegans were investigated. The best results by treatment of C. elegans were achieved in the presence of pure GPE 50 µg/ml without the presence of cholesterol. Surprisingly this medium assigns the increase of mean survival by 10.98 % in contrasting with medium containing the mixture of GPE 50 µg/ml and cholesterol. This negative impact of GPE and cholesterol co- administration on lifespan of C. elegans is more obvious by using sixfold higher concentration of GPE (300 µg/ml). In this case the increase of mean survival by treatment with pure GPE is 17.69 %. In addition the highest increase of progeny was observed in medium with pure GPE 300 µg/ml. Surprisingly this concentration was appointed as toxic with negative effect on lifespan of C. elegans. It is obvious that GPE does not protect C. elegans against oxidative stress significantly because it does not suppress the expression of hsp-16.2/GFP and does not protect against oxidative stress caused by lethal dose of juglone. These findings suggest that the antioxidant activity of GPE does not play prevailing role by...
