Monasteries in Danger. Disputes about Liquidation of Czech and Moravian Monasteries of the "Old Orders" in the Period before the Battle of White Mountain
Chládek, Oldřich ; Čechura, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Maur, Eduard (referee) ; x, (referee)
Liquidation of monasteries in the era of Reformations is a phenomenon which has been studied only to a certain level. There were very many cases of abolished or liquidated monasteries. The author concentrates only on two cases (Augustinian canonries in Kłodzko and Olomouc) where efforts to liquidate a monastery were met with resistance from the community or monastic structures. It is a multilayered topic, requiring a thorough analysis. Due to the fact that these disputes were interfered by a number of influential personalities (supreme provincial officials, nuncios, bishops, superiors of monastic orders etc.), it represents an ideal material to study the relationships within the high society in the era before the Battle of White Mountain. Besides the high politics we can also focus on other aspects - such as legal arguments of the conflicting parties or linguistic, art historical or theological layer. After research not only in Czech, but also in foreign archives (e.g. Rome, Kraków, Kłodzko, Wrocław, Vienna), the author refills or corrects older conclusions (Jan Tenora, Aloys Bach etc.). He also tries to verify the theory that within the Catholic Church those monasteries were abolished which were - in the economic and also spiritual layer - in a state of deep crisis.
The history of science in the seventeenth century: Science, Religion and Priest Valentim Estancel S.J.
Rego Monturil, Frederico Guilherme ; Binková, Simona (advisor) ; Štěpánek, Pavel (referee) ; Klíma, Jan (referee)
This thesis aims to discuss the History of Science in the Modern Age. It is a historical- philosophical reflection on the relationship between Science and Religion in the seventeenth century through the trip, works and life of the Czech mathematician, astronomer and Jesuit priest Valentin Stancel in Moravia, Bohemia, Italy, Portugal and Brazil . This study seeks to redimension the participation of the priests of the Society of Jesus in the development of the modern era by higlighting the activity of the Jesuit priests in the political-religious and scientific transformations that occurred in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Europe, in the Orient and in Portuguese America. The present study aims to reflect on the scientific discoveries of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, especially in the fields of mathematics and astronomy; the new conception of man and world that springs from the political and religious transformations of reformist thought and cultural renaissance; the shock of the new scientific theories and experiences with the Sacred Scriptures and consequently with Christian-Aristotelian scholastic theology; besides contesting the lack of participation of priests, or even religion, in contributing for the development of science. The timeframe of the work takes place primarily...
The Jesuit Missionary Policy of Adaptation in Japan under Alessandro Valignano
Rohlová, Kateřina Jenny ; Labus, David (advisor) ; Sýkora, Jan (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to discuss the way of leading and managing the Jesuit Mission in Japan by Alessandro Valignano from 1579 to 1603. It focuses mainly on pioneering methods of this Jesuit missionary. Just his methods made the Japanese mission so successful, however, not for the eternity. Particularly it is about his attitude toward the Japanese culture and about a try to adapt both on this culture and on the general conditions. Despite the time Society of Jesus and especially some of its members, including Valignano, were incredibly flexible and capable to respond to the actual needs of the mission. That is why practical side of the mission - financing this project and the very first diplomatic contacts - will be also included in this thesis. Scientific and cultural assets of the Europeans will end the work.

Černohorská, Soňa ; Binková, Simona (advisor) ; Dufková, Vlasta (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to introduce the personality of the portuguese jesuit António de Andrade and his journey to Tibet, where he entered as the first European across the Himalayas and where in the 17thcentury established the first missionary station. My aim is to outline the perspective from which the christian world of that time was looking at oriental cultures as well as the reasons that led jesuit missionaries to undertake such long and dangerous journeys. Several letters from his legacy have been preserved and I will study their contents in detail. They include a description of Andrade's voyage to Tibet, the course of missionary activities in Tibet and a description of Tibetan realia. To conclude, I will sum up the results achieved by Andrade and review his role as an explorer.

Linka, Jan ; Kvapil, J.

It also shows a significant contribution of Jesuits to the expansion of "Gods' Love" cult, who did not consider "Gods' Love" to be merely a mean to strengthen the internal belief, but also as an effective tool of the Catholic Anti-Reformation propaganda.
