Christian - buddhist polemic in Japan in the 17th century
Machálková, Andrea ; Obuchová, Ľubica (advisor) ; Kropáček, Luboš (referee)
The diploma thesis "Christian-Buddhist Polemic in Japan in the 17th century" deals mainly with the life and work of Fabian Fucan, one of the most noticeable figures of the early Japanese Christianity. The first part of the thesis is focused on the coming of Christianity to Japan, the mission and the subsequent persecution of Christians which later resulted in the final prohibition of Christianity in the country. The main part of the thesis puts brain to the analysis of two key works of Fabian Fucan - Christian apologetics called Myōtei Mondō and then anti-Christian treatise Ha Daiusu that Fucan wrote after leaving the Society of Jesus and becoming attached back to Buddhism. The final chapter pays attention to the phenomenon of "kakure kirishitan" ("hidden Christians"), i.e. groups of Christians who are the descendants of Christians secretly practicing during the Sakoku (literally, "closed country") period.

Shamanism from the View of the Theories of Religious Studies
Sochorová, Michaela ; Gebelt, Jiří (advisor) ; Obuchová, Ľubica (referee)
This work is concerned with the origin, development and problems connected with the concept of shamanism. The originally indigenous term was transformed from its objective level to the level of scientific metalanguage and soon after that became a universal concept, which according to the postmodern critics of too generalized and unclear terms was rejected as empty and meaningless. It is the consequence of universal definitions that not only made "shamanism" popular, but also inspired the interest for this phenomenon among many different disciplines, which always reflect "shamanism" in a number of various ways. The phenomenon of neoshamanism and the revitalization of the native "shamanic" traditions also have to be taken into consideration. Thanks to that it is really hard to define the meaning of the term itself. The aim of this work is at first to introduce - on the basis of a typology - the main, i.e. most widespread approaches working with the concept of shamanism, defining it and at the same time providing some propositions concerning the solution of the problems mentioned above. I also try to answer the question wheather the "shamanism" still represents a contributive category for contemporary science.

The Foundation of the Jesuit Mission in China and the Contribution of Mattei Ricci (1552-1610)
Bartošová, Hedvika ; Obuchová, Ľubica (advisor) ; Hlaváček, Petr (referee)
Missions are an important part of church history. With the spreading of the Christian faith goes the question: how far can one go to accommodate the gospel to the native countries and their cultures? Can this faith, with its Graeco-Roman origins, be accepted by people in different, non-European countries, without any changes? The first missionaries who sailed overseas to the Far East also had to handle this question.
