The Maleč farm at the time of F.L. Rieger
Vojáček, Milan ; Čechura, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Hájek, Jan (referee) ; Štaif, Jiří (referee)
František Ladislav Rieger was o ne of the most famous Czech politicians of the second half of the 19th century. He was František Palacky's son-in-law and his successor in the leading of the Czech politics. He and his wife Marie Rieger bought the Maleč farm from Franz Xaver Auersperg in 1862. Rieger had already had experience with management of a farm in Suchdol between 1854 and 1857. The Suchdol farm, much smaller than Maleč, did not bring enough profit. Rieger sold the Suchdol farm and his saw mill in Semily and bought the Maleč domain for 300 000 guldens. It was a big investment and Rieger had to mortgage the farm as well as his wife's house in Prague. By the research I wanted to answer the following general questions: 1. How did the farm in Maleč work? 2. How much ofhis time and effort did F. L. Rieger invest in the management? 3. How much money did he need for his representative life of an important Czech politician? 4. Where and how did he get his money? As far as the theme "Farms in the second half of 19th century" is concerned, analytic studies are very rare in the Czech historiography. Most studies about family farms do not go beyond the middle of the 19th century. The available literature is more general in its focus- about the agriculture, industry, demography, Rieger and his family, or political...
The Secularization of the Prague Working Class, Smichow and Its Vicinity in the Second Half of the 19th Century.
Černý, Jan Karel ; Štaif, Jiří (advisor) ; Pavlíček, Tomáš (referee)
(in English) A thesis deals with the secularization of a Prague, especially Smichow working class in the second half of the 19th century. The working class is usually considered the most secular stratum and the aim of the thesis is to verify the proposition locally and to examine why the process of secularization occurred in the working class so powerfully. The working class is drafted as a social stratum in which the process acts as well as the stratum actively practices it. The process of secularization is then divided into three categories; religion - spirituality - church and the process is conceptualized as "de-catholization" as well as the spiritual transformation. In the process of the transformation, traditional religion (Catholicism), its institutions (church) and religiosity lose their socio-cultural power and are replaced by modern ideologies, state (bureaucratic and rational) structures and implicit spirituality, resp., "un- religious faith". In the process of secularization, there is particularly stressed the role of urbanization, industrialization, socialism, church and its social teaching. In the thesis, there are combined theoretical approaches of the sociology of religion (the sacred canopy) and religious studies (dimensions of the Sacred) and are applied to the secondary and...

Entering of the Working-Class Movement into the Public Space: Třebíč at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century
Šmejkal, Boleslav ; Štaif, Jiří (advisor) ; Kladiwa, Pavel (referee)
After the Velvet Revolution of 1989 the analysis of working-class movement, a formerly privileged field of Czechoslovakian historiography, had been suspended for nearly 20 years. This bachelor's thesis (BT) wants to deal with this topic from an unconventional point of view. It is inspired by the concept of public space into which the working-class movement enters either physically or discursively as a new and in its own way as a somewhat nonconformist social phenomenon. The thesis' approach aims to analyse the strategies, forms and goals of these actions, with special attention given to tension between "town normality" and the efforts of "labour revolutionization" of the public space. The historical area in which this topic is examined is Třebíč - a town in-between the cultural influence of Vienna, Brno and Prague with population of approximately 10 000 people, about half of which were labourers. The starting point of the analysis are social relations of this "laboratory" of modernity in Czech lands between 70's and 80's of the 19th century. Afterwards this paper focuses on social changes including public displays of disagreements with state, economical and ruling establishment. The main sources of this BT are documents from labour associations and other associations, unions, state administration, town...

The censorship in Bohemia in the context of the Habsburg Monarchy in the Vormärz period
Píša, Petr ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Štaif, Jiří (referee) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
The censorship in Bohemia in the context of the Habsburg Monarchy in the Vormärz period Petr Píša The PhD-thesis analyses and interprets the role of censorship as well as other institutional and structural mechanisms that have participated in the regulation of literary communication within the cultural sphere of the historical Czech lands (Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia). The act of censorship is understood as a set of administrative procedures controlling and regulating the literary communication that takes place in the printed media within the sphere of power of a particular social authority. On the other hand the term structural regulation is used for those types of blocked literary communication which cannot be considered for the consequence of the institutionalized power interference. The thesis is based on a triad of ideal-types of censorship - a paternalistic, liberal and authoritarian one. The key concept for the submitted thesis is the type of paternalistic censorship, which decision-making process is governed by a differentiated idea of the various categories of the public and an endeavour to strictly control the reading matter of the broad, less educated masses. The thesis also introduces and critically revises the methodological impulses of the so- called new censorship. It follows the discursive...
