The Journal Religion und Priester. An Effort to Analyse the Publicistic Discourse of Catholic Theologians during the Reforms of Josephinism.
Pěček, Vít ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Tinková, Daniela (referee)
1 Abstract (in English): The Bachelor thesis deals with the journal Religion und Priester, which was published between 1782 and 1784 in Prague and then in Vienna. This periodical was probably the first religious journal in the lands of the Crown of Bohemia, however, it was not an orthodox Catholic journal. The work concentrates at first on external characterization, subsequently it tries to solve the complicated question of the authorship of the journal during its first phase. Space is also dedicated to Franz Xaver Huber, the main editor and the personality with the very interesting life career. The core of the thesis consists in the analysis of the religious thought in the Religion und Priester, which was powerfully influenced by the Enlightenment and Josephinism. The goal of the authors was the cleansing of the religion, mainly the Catholic, the "enlightenment" of the people and the unification of Christian denominations. Besides that, they criticize the monastic life, celibacy, or papacy, and they demand some other principal changes in the Catholic Church. The next chapter describes a few contemporary reflexions concerning the analysed periodical. At the end the author speculates about the main tendencies in the journal - about the "naturalism", etatism, or "secondary Christianity".
The Life in the communities of the School Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis in 1971-1989. Everyday life and gender roles of women's religious communities during socialism.
Libánská, Anna ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Činátl, Kamil (referee)
The work deals with the everyday life of the School Sisters of St. Francis on the Czech territory in 1971 - 1989, but it aims to cover the history of the congregation throughout the whole period 1948 - 1989. The use of the oral history method captures mainly the life in secret monastic communities, both female and gender, in which sisters lived especially for the purpose of leading the noviciate. In addition to describing the strategies that sisters have developed during the given period for the maintenance of religious life, the thesis also deals with gender modifications and their transformation, not only related to the specific conditions of the communist regime, but also to the Second Vatican Council, which brought about fundamental religious reform.

Finsterschott, Theo ; Holý, Martin (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
This thesis focuses on the life course of the Prague burgher Karel Kyswein (1578-1621), his Nuremberg family linage, including his kinship with Tucher, Schlüsselfelder and Viatis families and non-material and material aspects of his everyday life. Family roots of the researched individual are inspected using Nurnberg registers. For the examination of Karel's later life, the Prague archive sources are utilized: testaments, probate inventories and others. Kyswein's probate inventory is also the main source for the examination of his library, furniture, and way of storing various objects, utensiles, objects of hygiene, clothes, jewels and valuables, paitings, musical instruments, children's objects, house fire-fighting equipment, and trading goods. The thesis emphasises the clothing component of the inventory, at the threshold between Reinessance and Baroque. The work also deals with some particular topics, such as the actual appearence of the Gößwein coat of arms, his religion and his role in the Old-town Lutheran community.

Matyska, Jan ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Maur, Eduard (referee)
Presented diploma thesis deals with issues of marital migration in early modern town milieu. By quantitative analysis of written records of marriage contracts and parish registers from Náchod domain (Eastern Bohemia), marriages of Nachod burghers with persons from other localities are tracked.

Then the marital migration is examined by sex and marital status of immigrants, distance and legal status of the place of their origin, or proportion of migration across the boundary of the domain. Apart from the pursuite to describe the main features of the migration phenomenon, the attention is focused on its consequences, which are the issues of integration of immigrant into the community of the town. The final part of the thesis deals with some qualitative aspects of marital migration and its reflection in contemporary ego-documents.

Baroque landscaping. Comparing the Schlicksʼ and Saxe-Lauenburgsʼ attitude
Vokurka, Michal ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Chodějovská, Eva (referee)
Studying the early modern landscape during the baroque period was often linked to some kind of idealization of the relationship between the pre-modern man and the landscape they lived in. On the example of the 17 Saxe-Lauenburg manor districts I pointed out that the approach to the landscape used to be more functional and pragmatic than the existing literature assumed. The aristocratic representation and power legitimization was historically emphasised by building the landscape after the Thirty Years' War as well the dominancy of Catholicism. Comparing activities of the Saxe-Lauenburgs with the Schlick family and their exceptional composed landscape around Kopidlno, Staré Hrady and Veliš some common and particular trends in the making of landscape became apparent.
Votive Offerings at Selected Catholic Pilgrimage Sites: Theoretical Reflection and Anlysis of Extant Examples
Kolmačková, Tereza ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Chlup, Radek (referee)
Tereza Kolmačková Votive offerings at selected Catholic pilgrimage sites: Theoretical reflection and anlysis of extant examples Abstract The aim of my thesis is to analyse votive offerings at Catholic Marian pilgrimage sites mainly from the early modern period. Firstly I discuss Marian images at pilgrimage sites to show who were the votive offering brought to and to describe a broader context of their placement. The thesis is then focused on analysis of textual evidence from the 17th century relating to the Czech pilgrimage site Svatá Hora and of extant objects mainly from Bavaria. Based on these sources the most common types of votive offerings seem to be painted pictures, models of body parts, statues and figures, candles and jewelry, other objects, however, occur as well. The votive offerings were mostly donated to express gratitude for a miracle. Therefore, the miracle process is also shortly discussed in my thesis. Votive offerings did not, however, only show the gratitude of a devotee but it seems that their promise was needed for Virgin Mary to perform a miracle. My analysis suggests that very important aspects of votive offerings were their performative character and the power to create and maintain relationships with Virgin Mary and other pilgrims.

Namely it is concentrated on contats of authors to other persons or institutions, preferably on previous teachers and schoolmates from the University, citizen councils and royal administrators.

The main emphasis will be put in the constructing of adminstration of new province and in personality of Jan Svitavský z Bochova, the first adminstrator.
