Ways of identity representation of Tajik Pamirs in relation to Religious and Language Affiliation
Retka, Tomáš ; Nešpor, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Šatava, Leoš (referee) ; Kokaisl, Petr (referee)
The thesis focuses on the subject of group identities of Tajik Pamirs. The ethnonym "Pamir" describes inhabitants of the mountainous region of Pamir, who differ by their religious confession, language affiliation, together with some other aspects of material culture from other groups living in the area of contemporary Tajik Republic. The official policy of the Tajik republic does not recognise Pamirs as an ethnic minority, legally they are all considered as being part of Tajik majority. However, neither Tajiks, nor Pamirs themselves identify with this version of ascribed nationality as interpreted by the State. Members of both groups highlight mutual cultural differences (mainly drawing on religious confession), through which they delimit from each other. The aim of this thesis is to analyze factors that influence forms and ways the identities of the mountain Pamirs manifest themselves. The text reflects the issue mainly on three basic levels: language affiliation, religious confession and kinship. Language affiliation and religious confession prese nt basic aspects of Pamirs' group identities. Through these aspects Pamirs define themselves against members of other (non-Pamirs) groups, specifically against majority Tajiks. The thesis also asks questions about the role of such concepts of Pamirs'...

Řičánková, Alena ; Macek, Petr (advisor) ; Petrasová, Taťána (referee) ; Nešpor, Zdeněk (referee)
Although the North Bohemian region is mainly associated with the industrial rise of the second half of the nineteenth century, which altered the local scenery and cities irreversibly, there were also far more traditional constructions being built around 1900, such churches. Between their solid-state and period concept is blended the influence of the authentic architectural progression, individual impress of architects, furthermore liturgical requirements of particular beliefs and concrete visions of owner-builders. Back then the ideal image of a church was seen as the root of discussion and polemic when many theoretical texts and building regulations were originated. The submitted work observes mainly the use of modern architectonic components following authentically traditional church architecture type. It is done pre-eminently, based on written theory and architectural practices confrontation. The given discussion I pursue with Catholics, Old-Catholics and mainly with Evangelical Confessions, whose base of theoretical text is the widest and newly build churches the most numerous.

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.

Wienerová, Sára ; Pešek, Jiří (advisor) ; Nešpor, Zdeněk (referee)
The diploma thesis concerns with the Jewish community in Prague during the years 1945 and 1948. Specifically, the emphasis is being put not only on the progress of post-war restitutions and their legislative adjustments but also on the progress and legislative adjustments of dispossession of individual Jewish property before and during the Second World War. The post- war praxis of restitutions examines specific and significant impact of Jewish institutions on the form and progress of the restitution. Main institutions are Jewish Museum in Prague and the Jewish Community of Prague with the most important Jewish personalities as their representatives. Difficulties related to the practice of restitution are analysed in detail and put into the context of the era subsequently. The thesis emphasizes the form of Czech antisemitism which had arisen from associating Jewish minority with the German one. The praxis of restitution then examines the above mentioned difficulties in the context of still existing antisemitism. The main sources for elaboration of the thesis are archive copies of the Journal of the Council of Jewish Religious Communities (časopis Rady židovských obcí in Czech) - Věstník, and other archive materials which are classified into the context of the era based on wide specialized literature...

Dundáčková, Petra ; Bartlová, Milena (advisor) ; Nešpor, Zdeněk (referee)
This study is based on comparative analysis of (un)faith in the literary and academic works of the writer and philosopher Egon Bondy. The aim of this research is to find out how much he was actually an avowed atheist and what differences are in the concept of transcendence in the philosophical and literary works. The study is divided into three sections. The first section is devoted to the theoretical framework, the second section pays attention to Bondy's biography and the third section concerns the analysis and comparison of his philosophical and literary works. The theoretical first section primarily deals with Ricœur's comparison of narrative in history and philosophy presented in a monograph Time and Narrative, which is analogously used for the comparison of literature and philosophy. An important fact is that Bondy's literary work is characterized by significant autobiographical features and stands on the border between literature and philosophy. The second section deals with the life of Egon Bondy and his work in the underground environment. The third section pays attention to the main lines of the selected works (Philosophical work I.-II., Nepovídka) and there is a comparison of texts based on a content analysis. The result is the finding of a high similarity of expressed ideas. Bondy...
