NATIONAL IDEAS IN THE BAROQUE ERA - IN THE WORKS OF HERMANN CONRING AND BOHUSLAV BALBÍN
Procházková, Dana ; Maur, Eduard (advisor) ; Himl, Pavel (referee) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
The theme of the dissertation is nationalism in the Early Modern Age and the issue of national identity, its origin and its strengthening in this era, as exemplified by the German and Czech nations. The author concentrates on the manifestations of patriotism in the works of two significant authors - Bohuslav Balbín and Hermann Conring. Both are considered to be significant scholars of the Baroque period, thought to be the intellectual elite of their time. Their works were repeatedly published and greatly influenced contemporary and later scholars, and through them the greater public, as well. The author compares both personalities, i.e. two different nations and beliefs stemming from previous traditions and humanistic scholarship. At the same time, the author concentrated on examples of nationalism from the perspective of general characteristics.

Vašek, Jan ; Hojda, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Močičková, Jitka (referee)
The aim of this study is to illustrate, using the case of the village of České Milovy, the period of late mountains colonisation at the end of the first third of 18th century and influence of arrival of new settlers on established order of Rychmburk manor. The present study also wishes to provide the insight to the changing life of this dominical village and its inhabitants, and, by comparing it with other municipalities situated in the target region, it searches for common signs and/or disparities. In particular, rules for conditions of land allotment and obligations toward the lords are focused. As the rules were changing during period observed, the attention is concentrated on impact of those changes to the image of the commune and its progressive incorporation into the set of older villages of Rychmbourg area, as well as on the stabilisation of intra-community links. Last part of the present study aims to assess the influence of events since the mid-19th and hectic 20th centuries on habits of the village and on how this impact modified its overall now- a-days picture.
Václav (Remedius) Prutký OFM: Itinerarium missionum apostolicarum (introductory study, edition and translation with commentary on part I of the work)
Förster, Josef ; Svatoš, Martin (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee) ; Navrátilová, Hana (referee)
The dissertation presents primarily the text itself of part of Itinerarium (the first 31 chapters) in the form of a critical edition. It thus greatly eases the work of all future researchers in studying the work in the Latin original. The edition was acquired on the basis of a manuscript autograph, the property of the Franciscan Brothers Provenance in Prague kept in the National Library of the Czech Republic. The Itinerarium ranks amongst the most important works from a file of manuscript sources, the authors of which are members of the St. Wenceslas provenance of the order of lesser brothers of St. Francis, who were active during the course of the 18th century on missions in Egypt or Ethiopia and attained a prestigious standing in the mission hierarchy (Jakub Římař, Remedius Prutký, Kristián Schneider). Their works, which are of a various nature (itineraries, journals, collections of medical prescriptions, language dictionaries, liturgical manuals etc.), may be valuable sources for experts in a diverse range of fields: oriental studies, Egyptology, geography, history, linguistics, literary history etc. With regard to the fact that Prutký's literary work is unknown to the Czech reader and has been presented only thanks to the translation of two chapters acquired in the 1940s by Z. Kalista, it evidently...
Municipal administration and offices in the Middle Elbe region during the Thirty Years' War
Ďurčanský, Marek ; Hojda, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Čornejová, Ivana (referee) ; Pešek, Jiří (referee)
The operation of municipal offices and municipal administration in general was not a too popular topic in Czech historiography. Even this aspect of the life of Czech towns was strongly influenced by the persecution of Czech estates after the battle on the White Mountain and following processes with the gravity centre in the third decade of the 17th century, as well as by the direct and indirect consequences of military actions. Research in such area can also enrich our knowledge of many aspects of contemporary city life and contribute to a better explanation of such consequential phenomena as emigration and recatholicization. The municipal councils and municipal offices can often be named as nervus rerum in these circumstances. To elaborate the problems of military influences on administration in the times of the Thirty Years' War fully is not possible without more detailed studies about the situation of particular municipal offices. This kind of research would enable us to compare several regions. But there is a lack of such studies. The way out can be found by using proper surveys of the situation of several towns. Such probes would outline basic tendencies and phenomena, or the key questions for the subsequent research, such as: a) the extent and structure of the bodies of municipal administration and...
Rokycany town administration and it's representatives between 1573-1699
Hrachová, Hana ; Hojda, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Sulitková, Ludmila (referee) ; Ledvinka, Václav (referee)
In the early modern age the town of Rokycany belonged to the smaller towns with an economy characterized by crafts and agriculture. In the 16th century the city started to bloom remarkably. Because of its loyalty shown to Ferdinand I, the town wasn't affected by the sanctions of that ruler, but was instead granted many privileges. In 1547 Rokycany became a free royal town. The above treatise discusses and follows the evolution of the town administration, the purpose of the single offices and its personnel. The most important administrative institution of the town was the municipal council with legislative, jurisdictional and executive powers. The town's economies and the administration of the town's property belonged also to the duties of the council. The municipal council counted twelve counsellors; its most prestigious member was called primate. Every counsellor was in charge of the government of the town for the period of one month, during this period he used the title of burgomaster. In the examined period of time, 19 men became primates and the majority of them kept the tile lifelong. Three men worked as imperial town magistrates In the period preceding the Battle of the White Mountain two primates managed with their eminence to reach fame also outside the town. That is Jan Novoměstský Srnovec from...
Historia S. Joannis Nepomuceni of 1729 and its period translations
Bočková, Alena ; Svatoš, Martin (advisor) ; Juríková, Erika (referee) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
Grounded by studie s of early modem Czech and Latin literature, this dissertation examines the work of a Jesuit historian Maximilianus Wietrowsky Historia S. Joannis Nepomuceni (1729) and its Czech translation Zpráva historická o životě sv. Jana Nepomuckého [Historical Report on the Life oj Saint John ojNepomuk] (1730). Apart from analysing both works from literary-historical, linguistic, stylistic and translational points of view, the thesis attempts to depict their wider cultural-historical context and to appreciate the important elements pertaining to the time ofthe works' birth and their content. In the introduction, the thesis is concemed with the question of authorship ofboth the Latin original and its Czech translation. After careful examination of a mostly manuscriptial body of sources, the author succeeded in finding grounds on which it is possible to assume that the author of the Latin version is indeed Maximilianus Wietrowsky (1660-1737), whose authorship has been indicated - without sufficient evidence - in historical literature. The analysis of the Czech translation, on the other hand, seems to disprove Wietrowsky's authorship of the Czech version.
Students of the Unity of Brethern at the beginning of the 17th century or priests-to-be from the archive of Matouš Konečný
Růčková, Markéta ; Ebelová, Ivana (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
In the course of reconstruction works in the area of the former cloister Na Karmeli in Mladá Boleslav in August 2006 the builders found two wooden boxes. The boxes were buried under the backfilling material of the arch of the cloister's ground floor. They have preserved the so-called Archive of Matouš Konečný (1572-1622), one of the last bishops of the Unity of Brethren before the Battle of White Mountain in 1620. The unilateral correspondence dating back to the first two decades of the 17th century constitutes the main part of the excavated archival documents. The correspondence which was addressed to Matouš Konečný is composed partly of letters from students (or to be precise priests-to-be of the Unity of Brethren). These letters constitute the basis of the submitted diploma thesis. Firstly, the author offers the basic characteristic of the mentioned archival findings and resumes hitherto scholarship related to the theme. Then the main core of the thesis is focused on the education of priests-to-be in the Unity of Brethren. This education took place in Brethren houses and was provided by priests. The quality of the knowledge passed on the pupils depended on knowledge and experience of these priests. The organization of this type of education was regulated by the church's order. Despite the fact that the...

The diaries of Zdenka Braunerová (1873-1883)
Šámal, Martin ; Ebelová, Ivana (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
Zdenka Braunerová je v povědomí širší veřejnosti zapsána jako česká výtvarnice, malířka. Přestože sama sebe vnímala a považovala za krajinářku, významná a mnohem více ceněná je především její tvorba v oblasti knižní grafiky. Její přínos a význam pro české umění je dokonce přirovnáván k významu Boženy· Němcové pro českou literaturu. Mnohem méně je již známa skutečnost, že se jedná o první plně profesionální českou malířku. Rozhodnutí stát se nezávislou a soběstačnou umělkyní a především pak jeho realizace, však narážely na zažité představy o postavení a funkci ženy ve společnosti. Z tohoto důvodu se stala jakýmsi symbolem vzepření se proti dobovým konvencím či maloměšťáctví. V minulosti bylo napsáno mnoho biografických, umělecko-historických či populárně naučných publikací, studentských prací i odborných článků zabývajících se životem či jednotlivými aspekty života této malířky. Přesto zájem o život a dílo Zdenky Braunerové neutichá, což lze vysvětlit nejen významem této osobnosti pro českou kulturu, ale také specifičností jejího života, který stále láká k novému zkoumání a objevování nových souvislostí. Vliv na badatelský zájem má nepochybně také neuvěřitelně rozsáhlá pozůstalost rozptýlená po mnoha českých i zahraničních institucích. Toto mimořádně pestré bohatství není stále ještě zcela vytěženo a láká...
Books of financial orders of the Prague Old Town Council (1656-1677) and the system of the urban economy after the Thirty years' war
Dvořák, Tomáš ; Hojda, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Mendelová, Jaroslava (referee)
The purpose of this paper is to introduce books of financial orders of Prague Old Town Council from 1656 - 1677 (1678) as a unique historical source for studying expenses of the municipality. These books are higly significant for being the only preserved economic Old Town records from that period of time. Thanks to them it is possible to reconstruct the municipal economy in the 2nd half of the 17th century. The author of this document has tried to analyze individual types of expenses and sort them out into a system. He has recognized four basic categories: repayments to municipal creditors, expenses for the purchase of land and estates, building investments, gifts and donations, salaries and wages. The last category has been made of small number of other expenses. All the above mentioned expenses are described in detail in different chapters and interpreted in the context of Prague Old Town history. There are many other documents, manuscripts and registers stored in Prague City Archives which have been used for this purpose.
