Collegiate Chapter of Stará Boleslav: economic conditions in the early modern period
Kratochvíl, Miroslav ; Kostlán, Antonín (advisor) ; Maur, Eduard (referee)
In my diploma thesis is analyzed economic security of the collegiate chapter house in Stará Boleslav (near Prague). After an outline of the issue in the Middle Ages, the study concentrates on an evaluation of the profitability and economic impact of the estates of the Stará Boleslav chapter in the early modern period; also other possibilities of economic security are analysed here (including financial effect resulting from the Baroque pilgrimage). In some respects, the comparison is made here between Stará Boleslav collegiate chapter and some similar Czech church institutions. The topic is examined primarily on the basis of unpublished sources (land registers, population censuses etc.; list of the most important of them is included in appendix), taking into account also printed sources and secondary literature.

Linková, Marcela ; Hájek, Martin (advisor) ; Kostlán, Antonín (referee) ; Smith, Simon (referee)
Charles University in Prague Faculty of Social Sciences Institute of Sociological Studies Sociology Marcela Linková Doctoral dissertation Disciplining science: The impacts of shifting governmentality regimes on academic research in the natural sciences in the Czech Republic English abstract The dissertation Disciplining science: The impacts of shifting governmentality regimes on academic research in the natural sciences in the Czech Republic is a contribution to the study of institutional changes of the academic environment. I examine changes occurring in the last two decades in academic knowledge-making, and specifically in the natural sciences. Concretely, I focus on research assessment as an increasingly dominant practice of quality control. Previous analyses of the research assessment system in the Czech Republic argue that the system has been designed to suit primarily the practices of the natural sciences (Linkova and Stockelova 2012; Stockelova 2012). In this dissertation I am therefore interested in what forms research assessment takes in the natural sciences and what impacts it is having in terms of knowledge making practices, formation of researchers' subjectivities and, lastly, in terms of the future of research in the natural sciences. With this study I contribute to research into institutional...
Studies and Correspondence of the priests-to-be of the Bohemian Brethren in 1610-1618
Růčková, Markéta ; Ebelová, Ivana (advisor) ; Kostlán, Antonín (referee) ; Just, Jiří (referee)
Studies and Correspondence of the priests-to-be of the Bohemian Brethren in 1610-1618 Markéta Růčková Two wooden boxes were found during the reconstruction of the former Minorite monastery Na Karmeli at Mladá Boleslav in 2006. The boxes concealed the so-called Archives of Matouš Konečný. The Archives contained documents that originated in the office of, or were addressed to, one of the four bishops of the Bohemian Brethren, Matouš Konečný (1569-1622), whose seat was at Mladá Boleslav. A significant part of the discovery consists of correspondence addressed to Bishop Konečný. A substantial part of the correspondence are documents related to the dispatch of young aspiring Brethren priests for study at educational institutions abroad. Along with letters of the students themselves, sent from Bremen and Beuthen an der Oder (Bytom Odrzański in Poland), where the young men attended academic grammar schools (gymnasia illustria), the boxes contain the students' pledges and accounts of their expenditures. The students' reports are supplemented with the correspondence of their teachers. The collection of letters from students and teachers as well as other documents being thus thematically delimited, our principal objective was to perform an analysis of their content and to prepare an edition of the documents....

Jan Sembera Cernohorsky of Boskovice and the heritage of the House of Liechtenstein
Dufková, Kateřina ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Kostlán, Antonín (referee)
This diploma thesis is dedicated to Jan Sembera Cernohorsky of Boskovice, Moravian aristocrat from the second half of 16th century, the last descendant of an important family of Boskovice. It describes his life story from the childhood to the death which it puts into the broader context and creates a comprehensive view of the higher nobles of his time. Particular attention is paid to the family of Boskovice, especially its last generation, which represent aside from Jan Sembera primarily his brother Albrecht Cernohorsky of Boskovice and Semera's friend and relative Jan of Boskovice and Trebova. The specific role in Jan Sembera's biography necessary plays the transfer of the legacy of the house of Boskovice to the Liechtenstein's family. This was accomplished through two marriages between Karl and Maxmilian of Liechtenstein and Sembera's daughters Anna Marie and Katerina. The importance of those alliances is reflected in the perspective of both financial as well as cultural capital inherited by the House of Liechtenstein and the way how did they use and treat it.
The structure of currency in the Czech lands in the second half of the 17th century. The predictive value of coin findings of the second half of the 17th century
Brádle, Vojtěch ; Kostlán, Antonín (referee) ; Šimek, Eduard (referee)
Contemporary Czech numismatics still lacks an up-to-date summary work which would deal with the issues of monetary circulation in Bohemia in the second half of the 17th century which to a great extent coincides with the rule of Leopold I. Besides studying written sources monetary situation of the given period may be also enlightened in a way by coin hoards cached at that time. Following the criteria of the minimum number of 100 coins in particular hoards, their complete or almost complete preservation and a certain degree of expert processing, 13 coin hoards were selected cached by their owners between 1650 and 1700 containing in all 8089 coins. These coins were used for making a detailed analysis with the objective to ascertain monetary structure in Bohemia in the second half of the 17th century, compare the results with the composition of coins hoards from between 1618 and 1648 and thus reveal possible changes and trends. In the case of Bohemian coinages the objective was also to compare its representation in coins hoards abroad in other parts of the Habsburg monarchy. Last but not least, the analysis was to verify some theses often repeated in literature concerning e.g., occurrence and influx of foreign coins to the territory of Bohemia or significance of private issuers of coins from Bohemia, Moravia...

Fridrich, Hynek ; Kostlán, Antonín (referee) ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor)

First written resources about Žďárský appeared already in 1295, when he is mentioned in one of the papers as a witness "Stanizlaus de Zar". It is certain, that family is even older. From 1300 - 1500 the family grew significantly, but continue to reside in the area of Doupov where they resided in only few fortresses. During 15th century there were formed four family lines. One of them died out already in 16th century, two other ones died out in 17th century and the last one continues until today in Germany. Under the name of Sahrer von Sahr von Shönberg. In the first part of 15th century the family was made known by Jan Šmikouský of Ždár,...
Topic of the conference
Kostlán, Antonín
The issue of scientists in exile has been of interest primarily due to the large wave of emigration which ensued in Europe in the face of the Nazi regime. However, other waves of emigration and exile in 20th century Europe, such as those evoked by European and non-European authoritarian regimes and dictatorships or other malignant political developments, have so far escaped more detailed attention.

Czech scholars in exile, 1948-1989
Kostlán, Antonín
Czechoslovakia in the years 1948-1989, represented one of the countries of the Soviet power bloc where the development of research was in many ways supported by the country's government, but at the same time subjected to various restrictions and strong political pressure. The paper focuses on the main characteristic features of the emigration of scientists and intellectuals in the period of the communist regime and presents the results of an analysis of departure of the workers of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences to exile. It tries to estimate the overall extent of this emigration, deliberates about the further careers of exile scholars and introduces an attempt of exile typology.
