The character of a priest in Czech literature of the 19th century
Trdlica, Vilém ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Hošna, Jiří (referee)
The thesis analyzes the prose works of Czech literature of the 19th century, in which a character of a priest appears. The thesis interprets the passages of selected works of K. V. Rais, K. Klostermann, J. Š. Baar, I. Herrmann and B. Němcová. The works of fiction, which elaborate on the psychology of the characters more deeply, are set into rural environment. The priests enter various relationships and conflicts with the parishioners. By that, either a picture of a traditional village is illustrated, or, its profound transformation is depicted. The thesis is also devoted to analyzing the description of mutual relations between priests. For the figure of a priest in Czech literature is typical that he communicates with believers mainly through his office, but that he also expresses his social feeling beyond that. The thesis concludes that, in Czech literature of the 19th century, the priest is generally perceived and depicted as a character with predominantly positive features.

He initiated a tradition which continued, with peaks and plateaux, throughout the Premyslid period, and this was important, for a native historical tradition was one of the marks of a Latin Christian society."] Cosmas' Chronicle (The Chronicle of Czechs) is part of the context of "national history". Cosmas wrote a scholarly, entertaining, but also politically committed work, presenting a "national program" of sorts. This was no Czech specialty - when we think of Europe in the 11th and 12th century, we see a garden of sprouting new nations, the medieval "spring of nations". The first national states, with clear territorial...

Tomášková, Tereza ; Hošna, Jiří (advisor) ; Škarpová, Marie (referee)
6 Abstract The thesis is focused on research on the ideal of chivalry and conception of the ideal knight in the medieval literary sources which were written in Czech. Based on the analysis of chivalric rhymed epic and selected chivalric short stories and a comparison of each character of the ideal knights the thesis determines the set of the most important attributes which contribute to formation of the ideal of knighthood. The ideal of knighthood comprises not only virtues such as knight's internal traits, qualities and skills, but the attributes which are rather external as well. The thesis provides mainly the closer analysis of honour, prowess and loyalty, which represent the central concepts of the chivalric ethic. It also deals with the conception of endurance, nobility, wisdom, generosity, piety and justice as other possible attributes of the ideal representative of knighthood.
