Bobůrková, Laura ; Lahoda, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (referee)
The thesis called "Christian motif with abstraction tendency in sacral area after 1945" deals with paintings related to this topic on the background of artistic profiles of the following artist: Mikuláš Medek, Ludvík Kolek, Jaroslav Šerých, Milivoj Husák and Petr Veselý. The sacral work is being put into context with Christian art which can be found in sacral environment. The introduction titled "Art and theology" is about the relationship between the modern Christian painting and theology. The artistictheological discussion cannot be separated from historical outlook or problems, which are closely connected with a question: Under what conditions and by the use of which artistic technique should we depict the likeness of God?
The iconography of the oldest paintings with the theme of Christ's birth
Šindelářová, Martina ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
The nativity of Christ is one of a crucial moment in the salvation history - the point which stands in the beginning of Christ's physical presentation in the world. It is no wonder that a demand of its representation in the visual art emerged very soon. Therefore, the picture of Christ's nativity is ranked among the oldest visually processed themes which derive from the life of Christ. This long history attracted an attention of art historians as early as in the 19th century but the most significant studies came from a pen of art historians who worked during 20th century, mainly in the second part of 20th century - for example works of Gertrude Schiller or Günter Ristow. Although there are a lot of books and articles about this theme, none of them has emerged in recent years when our knowledge are enriched by an array of new information. And also a methodology was radically changed. The only one more complex modern study is Rainer Stichl's work. However, his interest is focused on the Eastern pictures. There is still an empty place. For that reason, I attempted to make "the first step" so that I could fill this lack. My "first step" became the research of the olderst well-preserved pictures with the theme of Christ's nativity. The primary subject of my work is characterization of a content side of this...

The iconography of holy warriors of the Christian East and West
Hořínková, Marina ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Jančárková, Julie (referee) ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (referee)
+e holy soldiers are one of the most venerated groups of saints in Eastern Christianity. +ey were, according to hagiographic literature, soldiers of the Roman army who believed in Christ and were martyred for their faith. Because of their military status, these saints were venerated in the Byzantine Empire as guardians and allies in war, as the patron saints of warriors, rulers and their families. +e cult of holy soldiers, however, was not restricted to Byzantium. It was also strong in all the countries that fell under the Byzantine influence. +e invocation of holy soldiers in military conflicts was restricted to a rather small number of saints. +e most famous and venerated of these were addressed in prayer. +e miracles attributed to the holy soldiers most o7en concern SS George, Demetrius, +eodor Stratelat and +eodor Teron. Descriptions of their interventions in battles became topoi in the written sources. During battles, the given holy soldier always appeared unexpectedly in armour, on a white horse, helped the army to victory and then vanished suddenly. Veneration of the Byzantine holy soldiers was not widespread in the West. St George, however, was an exception. His cult enjoyed a surprising popularity in the Western, Central European world. During military conflicts, numerous countries fled under his...

Nagatkina, Darja ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
The topic of my thesis is the development of the iconography of Judgment, and since its inception after the acceptance of such ideas, both Eastern and Western Churches. The beginnings of Judgment display back to the IV. century (the first being displayed as separate sheep from the goats). The full composition appears from VIII. century in Byzantium and since then the idea spread in the system murals both in Byzantium and Russia and the West. In my diploma thesis I focused on the development of the iconography of this subject and especially in his later transformation caused by the cultural traditions of east and west and the mentality and religion but Christian, but as distinct peoples. The aim of my work will be compared and a more detailed analysis of the iconography of Judgment displayed by Catholics and Orthodox.

Gothic mural painting in castle chapels in Bohemia
Čechová, Lucie ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
This work is an investigation of Czech Gothic murals in castle chapels in Bohemia. The key for including of a mural to the catalogue was the founding date between early middle-ages up to the year 1526; end of the hegemony of the Jagellon dynasty amongst Bohemian Kingdom. The core of the work is a comprehensive catalogue of such murals. Included are 12 localities where these murals can be found, dating through 300 years of the middle-ages. Not included in this catalogue are the three well-documented sacral spaces in Karlštejn castle, although they also fit the time period in question. It must be acknowledged that the Karlštejn chapel murals are key elements in understanding this style and era, due to their quality and influential nature. This essay sought to isolate and explore any specific typology in this class of artwork. However, it must be stated that no such unique common character exists. The murals are more a reflection of the requirements and tastes of the individual patrons; they also express the fashion of their particular eras. There are also discrepancies in quality, which vary from century to century. In the 14th century, the quality of the investigated murals cannot be compared to that of paintings in the court of the King. However, by the late 15th and 16th centuries, the quality of murals...
Medieval mural paintings in the Church of Saint Apollinaire at new city in Prague
Skalický, Petr ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
Chapter of St. Apollinaire was transfered to Prague from Sadská next to Nymburk town in 1364. Recent knowledge was showing that Karel IV. got an important role in fundation of that. I think, that there is a more important to highlight a role of Prague archbishops there. These mural paintings where perhaps ordered by the third prague arcibishop Johannes of Jensenstein, at least he was probably participating on it. He was probably the most important medieval latin writer in Bohemia. We also can recognise the original iconography of murral paitings in the church through his literary output. These paintings are not only ilustrations of his literary output. They are even a way how to thing about it. Their main idea is an united church with only head, Jesus Christ. His represetative was St. Peter and his followers from papst throne. The style of these paintings is created by painting style of workers from Karlstein castle. They are showing court painting style from the end of seventies and beginnig of eighties of 14. century as well. That's why we can say that they where done in the first half of eighties of 14. century. They are done in interim style. These paintings are the most inportant and the best done after court paitings (Karlstein castle, Na slovanech monastery and The Catedral).
Reception of theology of the icon in the western cultural context
Bucková, Jana ; Lyčka, Milan (advisor) ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (referee)
In the first part of the thesis, the history of the icon origin and development is summarised, focusing on the history of the theological controversies of the iconoclastic disputes. The main topic of the thesis is the polemics with the assumptions of Leonid Uspensky (prominent representative of the icon theology), who used the icon theology to justify the superiority of the Eastern art, represented by icons over the western art. To find the reasons for the differences in the art developmnet in the East and the West, the historical and sociological context is scrutinised (including sociological,historical, economical and political perspectives) and subsequently, the arguments substantiating these differences are laid down. Consequently, the questions concerning the ontological icon status are scrutinised as well as the questions concerning the substance and the purpose of the art. The concept of unique solution to the question of the ontological status of icon is questioned in the thesis and the antagonism between the approach of John from Damascus and the later representatives of eastern iconodules (iconophiles) is also discussed. The question of the substance and the purpose of art is defined in the thesis in line with the work of prominent European philosophers, I. Kant and G.F.Hegel. Their conclusions...
