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.

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.
