The Development and Transformation of Temple Institutions of the 1st millennium BCE
Špaček, Ondřej ; Bertolini, Ludovica (advisor) ; Mynářová, Jana (referee)
AJ The aim of this thesis is to establish a historical overview of the happenings at the site of Sippar and its main temple of Ebabbar on the verge of Neo-Babylonian and Achaemenid periods through a compilation of available and published textual sources. At the moment, translating and researching unpublished texts is not necessary to achieve the thesis's aim and thus will remain omitted and only later it shall be expanded upon during the author's future research. As such, the author is going to address and merge the most notable information from the currently published literature in order to compile a thorough summary of the happenings at the site of the ancient city of Sippar that is up to date. As a result, the thesis hopes to give the reader the ability to navigate oneself in the history of Sipparean temple of Ebabbar throughout the end of Neo-Babylonian period with the primary focus on the institution's continuity and discontinuity and thus to serve as a reference point, guiding the reader to further, more specifically oriented literature. The question of where the change was prevalent and where it was ephemeral is going to be conveyed using several examples. Keywords: Sippar, Ebabbar, Neo-Babylonian period, Achaemenid period, 1st Millennium BCE, religious traditions, temple officials

Typology of alternative housing residents
Domkářová, Anna ; Novák, Arnošt (advisor) ; Špaček, Ondřej (referee)
This thesis is focused on alternative forms of living (caravans, boats, houseboats, yurts, tiny houses, and others specified by high mobility and small space) in the context of the recent crisis. These forms of living can be an answer to social, political, and economical situations. This theme is not only about the recent housing crisis, but also about the housing process and the concept of "home". This thesis, based on half-structured interviews which were completed with additional secondary sources, tries to find an understanding of the given choices and look for similarities and differences in the deeper relations of inhabitants to their own form of housing, which are tied to specific motivations, choices, home enjoyment, but also to problems which the specific form has. The diverse relations to housing are the core of this thesis - to create a typology of citizens who use alternative forms of living. Types like old-school, adventurer, pragmatic, planter and bohemian were created due to the interpretation of found data and are representatives of different approaches to the concept of home, but also to oneself and to the world. Keywords housing crisis, alternative housing, affordable housing, typology
