Ritualization of death and dying in the Revolution of 1848: the cult of the dead
Randák, Jan ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Řepa, Milan (referee)
non-traditional view of the subject of the revolutionary year of 1848. While a vast majority of the existing research has been focused on the course of the revolution, particular political camps and leaders of the contemporary movement, I have put emphasis on a phenomenon seemingly concealed and disregarded. My attention was aimed on the dead, the victims of the events of this hectic period. Death as such has indeed been a traditional interest of historians, nevertheless, reception and reflection thereof in a political or rather a revolutionary context is a fairly less regarded subject. Therefore, I have laid out an indeed concrete topíc in my thesis - ritualisation of death and dying during the revolution of 1848. A simple question is apparent: why study this subject of the dead and victims in the Czech context when no major fights occured here and thus the number of fatalities was not extreme? After reading my thesis the answer com es up as obviously as the question does: despite a relatively low body count of the Pentecost events in June 1848, a cult of the dead and victims of the revolution 1848 is present in the course of the few restless months. The cult of the dead was a sophisticated means of using the victims to promote particular interests of both the reformatory and revolutionary camp as well as...
Emancipatory Jewish Communities in Moravia and Silesia
Baránek, Daniel ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Nesládková, Ludmila (referee) ; Řepa, Milan (referee)
The dissertation deals with the theme of the Jewish communities that were able to originate in Moravia and Silesia as a result of the civil emancipation of Jews in the middle of the 19th century. The individual chapters focus on the different aspects of the emancipatory Jewish commu- nities from their external institutional manifestations to their internal social structures, which reflec- ted the plurality of transforming religious, national and political identities within Jewish society. Attention is first devoted to the legal and demographic prerequisites for the establishment and development of Jewish settlement in the places where the Jews were not allowed to live before the emancipation. The emancipatory Jewish communities did not emerge as mere clusters of mem- bers of the Jewish minority, but rather as organized religious communities. Therefore, the work devotes great space to the genesis of small pre-emancipatory prayer fellowships, to their tranfor- mation to religious associations and religious communities, then focuses on attempts to transform the religious communities into democratic or national ones and on their degradation and destruction by the Nazi occupiers. The thesis examines the various factors influencing the "organization of Jewry" (attitude of the state authorities to the...

Czech national festive culture in 19th century (1860-1890)
Šima, Karel ; Havelka, Miloš (advisor) ; Hlavačka, Milan (referee) ; Řepa, Milan (referee)
This doctoral thesis focuses on researching the festive culture of a nation and its performative ability to shape national self-identifications. By analysis of a variety of activities which culminated between the 1860's and the 1870's this dissertation aims to examine why the interrelation between the concept of a nation and the festive culture was so significant particularly in that historical period, and also how it affected the form and dynamics of national (Czech) self-identification.

Ritualization of death and dying in the Revolution of 1848: the cult of the dead
Randák, Jan ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Řepa, Milan (referee) ; Kořalka, Jiří (referee)
Looking apart from subsidiary topics, the presented thesis generally attempts to take a non-traditional view of the subject of the revolutionary year of 1848. While a vast majority of the existing research has been focused on the course of the revolution, particular political camps and leaders of the contemporary movement, I have put emphasis on a phenomenon seemingly concealed and disregarded. My attention was aimed on the dead, the victims of the events of this hectic period.

State - country - nation: The loyalty of Moravian Czechs and Germans
Řepa, Milan
This study traces in parallel the transformation of the collective consciousness and loyalties of the Czech and German populations in Moravia in the 19th century. It focuses on various forms of collective consciousness – provincial patriotism, Austrian state patriotism, Czech and German nationalism. It looks at how they relate to other forms of solidarity or loyalty, such as those based on class, religion, or region and at how their formation was influenced by important events and historical processes, beginning with Enlightenment absolutism, the Napoleonic Wars, the revolutionary years 1848/1849, the evolution of civil society in the 1860s and 1870s, the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and the Franco-Prussian War (1870), and ending with the diversification of political life in the late 19th century.
