The damned, feared and ridiculed wolf in the Bohemian medieval society
Vařáková, Zuzana ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Nejedlý, Martin (referee)
In the Middle Ages wolves were traditionally seen as evil and demonic creatures, who had been killing farm and wild animals. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to reconstruct origins of these conceptions and their reflections in the society of Bohemian High Middle Ages and Late Middle Ages. The emphasis was placed mainly on wolves in literature and on questions, why they had been hunted and seen as pests. The thesis also tries to cover, how the wolves' reputation was reflected in the chosen material sources, namely in heraldry of Bohemian nobility and towns and in Prague house insignia. Extensive range of sources had to be processed to accomplish the goals of this thesis such as historiographic narrative sources, medieval encyclopaedias, pragmatic documents as well as material sources, which included mainly seals and coats of arms. The thesis would like to contribute to broadening the knowledge of more complex topic of animals in Bohemian Middle Ages. Key words: wolves, animals, Middle Ages, material sources, heraldry, seals, house insignia

Philippe de Mézières's (c. 1327 - 1405) Works as a Historical Source
Severýn, Martin ; Nejedlý, Martin (advisor) ; Žůrek, Václav (referee)
Although Philippe de Mézières (ca 1327-1405) was born into a not very influential gentry family from northern France, his steep career brought him to the Holy Land. As a diplomat and an ardent supporter of the idea of the Crusades, he got to visit the most important European royal courts, thus securing the attention of historians. He consciously reflects the political and social climate in Europe at the time, he explores religious issues and even own experiences - in short, de Mézières vast literary work is one of the most remarkable images of Europe during the late Middle Ages and the thinking of a medieval man of a high social status. Thanks to Philippe de Mézières' presence at the Royal Court of Charles IV in Prague and their likely meeting in Paris in 1378, we can trace evident links to Luxembourg politics in his work, to the Czech Kingdom and even to Charles IV himself, including his son Wenceslas. As a Crusades theoretician, de Mézières got himself involved in the highest levels of European politics, yet he constantly emphasized the need for morality, peace and cohesiveness in the courts. The thesis uses an example of one of de Mézières' later works, his Letter to Richard II (Epistre au roi Richarti, 1395), to explore diplomatic ties in Western Europe in the fourteenth century and pursues...
The Knight as an Ideal: the French, the English, the Armagnacs and the Burgundians as seen by selected French chroniclers in the Hundred Years' War
Čermák, Matěj ; Drška, Václav (advisor) ; Nejedlý, Martin (referee)
The presented B.A. thesis pursues the viewing of the Knight as an ideal figure during the later phase of the Hundred Yearsʼ War in France as depicted by the chroniclers Enguerrand de Monstrelet and Gilles le Bouvier, herald of Berry who presented this ideal to the noble public. A primary aim of the study is therefore to specify oftentimes abstract ideas of the knight as an ideal that the society of the time embraced. Furthermore, this thesis attempts to answer the question whether there was any development in the perception of the ideal as the war progressed. To facilitate the understanding the events of the Hundred Yearsʼ War, the first part of the study focuses on the causes and development of the War, and on the role of the chroniclers. The second part then presents the origins and evolution of the western chivalry and the concept of the knight as such. In addition, it also attempts to reflect upon the knight as an ideal - what it meant for the aristocratic society and why it was created. The third and most detailed part discusses, in particular, knightly virtues and their violation mainly on the battlefield as recorded by the chroniclers. Keywords: Middle Ages, Hundred Years' War, France, England, Burgundy, Armagnacs, chivalrous ideal, propaganda, chivalry
Parisian Journal as a Historical Source
Prošvicová, Lenka ; Nejedlý, Martin (advisor) ; Svátek, Jaroslav (referee)
EN The present work describes and compares French Armagnac dynasty and its allies. It primarily uses two period works, in which there is not only an image of Armagnac's recorded but also a long list of their actions on the soil of the French kingdom. Thanks to the specificity of the both main sources, the work also deals with the approach of thinking and perception of the authors who revealed their sympathies, antipathies and their own opinions through their personality. With this partiality, there is an opportunity to get different views of the Armagnacs, as well as their greatest enemies Burgundians. The aim of this work is to familiarize a reader with the Armagnac's dynasty, in a way as the period authors have seen and described. Also, try to discover the attitudes and beliefs that they left at lines of their works that are dated back to the high medieval France. Key words: Paris, Armagnacs, Hundred Years War, Charles VI., Bernard VII. Armagnacs, civil war, Saint-Denis abbey, medieval France
Courtly Love in the context of ludic elements of courtly culture (Cantigas de Santa Maria and the troubadour chansonnier R)

1./1 Courtly Love in the context of ludic elements of courtly culture (Cantigas de Santa Maria and the troubadour chansonnier R) Matouš Jaluška Abstract Dissertation Courtly Love in the context of ludic elements of courtly culture (Cantigas de Santa Maria and the troubadour chansonnier R) strives to refine on the common notion that the me- dieval courtly poetry is a kind of game. It is based in the tradition of thinking about playing, which is based on the essay Homo ludens of Johan Huizinga and continues through works of Roger Cailloise, Jacques Henriot and Eugen Fink to the current trend of Game Studies. Close reading of the authorities in the introductory chapter shows that each of them assigns an im- portant role to the notion of discontinuity or rupture that enables them to establish the game as a non-binding and safe world. The concept of troubadour poetic creation as a safe activity is explored in the second chapter based on the works of the two founding figures of the trouba- dour tradition, Guilhem de Peitieu ("the Count of Poitiers") and Marcabru. The comparison shows that the safety of troubadour poetry is closely connected with the idea of binding or non-binding language. Binding speech is strongly linked to the image of female power and the ability of women to breed offspring and thus to keep...
The Construction of a Historical Reality in Jean Froissart's Chronicles
Soukupová, Věra ; Nejedlý, Martin (advisor) ; Doudet, Estelle Cathrine (referee) ; Croenen, Godfried (referee)
The Construction of Historical Reality in Jean Froissart's Chronicles Jean Froissart, one of the most famous chroniclers of the Middle Ages, is generally recognized for the literary qualities of his work, less so for the credibility of his account. In my research I have endeavoured to follow those scholars whose aim has been to rehabilitate the author by studying him not on the basis of principles which govern our contemporary understanding of history as an academic discipline, but rather on the basis of conceptual movements which conditioned historical writing in the 14th century, taking into account the traditions upon which medieval conception of history was built. Put differently, this work seeks to examine closely the "historical forge" of Jean Froissart. Clearly, Froissart's historical project falls within a specific discourse on historical genres, on relationships between form and truth which an account of deeds is expected to convey, on the manner in which the authority of a story being told is constructed. It is on the very intersection of this context, on the one hand, and the individuality of the author, on the other, that I based my search for the chronicler's perspectives on the writing of history. Froissart was from the outset concerned with the issues of impartiality and credibility...
