War and Countryside. Recruits from the Třeboň Dominion in the Habsburg Army at the Beginning of the 18th Century
Paták, Josef ; Čechura, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Maur, Eduard (referee)
(in English): Early modern standing army and countryside were connected with dense network of relationships and influences that were reflected in several different layers. The personal link between countryside and army was a very important part of a mutual interaction. This connection resulted from the simple fact that rural subjects constituted a significant part of ranks and files that served, risked their lives and died in the early modern army. The main topic of the diploma thesis is the recruitment within the rural population. The thesis sets two fundamental goals. The first one is the recognition of various methods and techniques that the clerks and patrimonial authorities employed in order to administrate the military issues. The second one is the search for particular people that joined the army, the explanation of their life conditions, family background and social status and the comparison with other subjects which did not choose a career in the army. The research is territorially and chronologically confined to the Třeboň dominion at the beginning of the 18th century. The thesis is based mainly on the original sources stored in the State Regional Archive in Třeboň.
Migration and Mobility of the Subject Population in the Třeboň Dominion in the Second Half of the 17th and in the 18th Century
Paták, Josef ; Čechura, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Štaif, Jiří (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to examine and describe the migration of the subject population of the South Bohemian village of Dynín between 1661 and 1740. The analysis is based on a unique source, the 1661-1839 lists of subjects of the Třeboň dominion. The thesis uses the lists to restore lives of individual subjects. It compares the migration of the population in order to distinguish and describe five basic kinds of migration. The thesis aims to present the variability of migration. It suggests that migration and mobility of the subject population is a very complex topic that should not be simplified. The thesis examines the process of leaving the village and joining the army, which was particularly common in the 1730s. The work also compares the data provided by the lists of subjects with the information obtained from the parish and estate registers. Keywords Třeboň [dominion], Dynín, Lists of Subjects, Migration, Mobility, Subjects, Army
