The Phenomenon of Death in Great Britain 1815-1855
Michlová, Marie ; Holý, Martin (advisor) ; Lenderová, Milena (referee) ; Županič, Jan (referee)
This dissertation examines the phenomenon of death in the United Kingdom between 1815 and 1855. It analyses the attitudes of chiefly pre-victorian society towards death, using a synthesis of several different perspectives. Various aspects of death, dying and burial are thus viewed through the lens of contemporary law, medicine, the press, and the arts. Primary personal sources are also used. The multi-layered work combines a number of historical methods and as a whole can be classified as research into historical everyday life and mentalities. Chronologically, the thesis is between two wars, the Napoleonic and the Crimean wars. The 1820s-40s are one of the least researched periods of British history, so this dissertation fills something of a gap in existing research not only concerning the history of death in Britain. Keywords: 19th century, society, death, British history
Unpolitical portrait of Charles the Elder of Žerotín
Vilímcová, Zuzana ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Holý, Martin (referee)
This work deals with non-political aspects of the life of Charles the Elder of Žerotín, which is not so mapped in detail contrary of the political life. I try to restore Charles's personal and private life base on the huge amount of his correspondence. I am concerned with Charles roles of loving husband, worried father, a good friend and counsellor, a deeply believed Christian, constantly sick man and also the master of his lieges people. I try to find answers on what Charles was the father. Whether he liked all his wives. How the religious coercion works on him. How to cope with the iniquities of his dominions. Whether or not hesitated to help friends in need, and how he coped with his illness. I try to find answers to these questions and more in the Žerotín's letters and selected correspondence of persons from its surroundings. I illustrates the whole picture by comparing the findings of earlier historiography.

The aim is to focus on people, who didn't perform bureaucratic functions, so, the main task is the analysis of the reflection of the nobility on Servants, who were socially unequal with it.

Students of Unity of Brethren at foreign universities in the 16th and early 17th centuries
Píš, Ondřej ; Holý, Martin (advisor) ; Ďurčanský, Marek (referee)
The theme of the bachelor thesis is the study of the members of the Unity of Brethren at the foreign schools in the 16th and the early 17th century. As a main source we can regard the editions of the preserved registries of the specific educational institutions. I also used the preserved official correspondence, which further exlaines the lives of selected people. The Register of the Members of the Prague Church of the Unity of Brethren from 1607 was used for the confessional identification of the students. The bachelor thesis is thematically divided into four chapters. The first chapter introduces the system of the pre-university and the higher education in the Czech lands and also in the foreign countries and thematizes the phenomenon of the academic peregrination. The second chapter deals with the ralationship of the Unity of Brethren to the education in general. The most extensive third chapter contains biograms of a total of 19 selected students of the Unity of Brethren. In many cases these personalities have been partially or completely neglected by existing literature. Students life stories are analyzed in the forth chapter. The thesis also affected the not yet explored topic of family traditons in education.

Natural disasters in the region of Rychnov in sight of folk chroniclers 1700-1800
Věchet, Jan ; Holý, Martin (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
v anglickém jazyce The study of sources related to the folk provenance is often in terms of the Czech historiography a neglected issue. Especially the research of folk chronicles has reached the utmost boom in the middle of the nineteenth century and then also in the interwar years. Nowadays, the study does not attract much attention. Therefore, the aim of this work is to capture and systematize the existing knowledge on this subject. Moreover, it is necessary to emphasize and show some other possibilities of dealing with these particular sources because they are valuable work for contemporary historiographical studies such as microhistorical and cultural anthropological research. Although one might think that these annals have rather a small informative value for the traditional political historical events, they offer an interesting insight into everyday life of ordinary people living in the countryside those days. This fact can definitely help one understand traditions as it also represents tendencies and trends in attitudes and behaviour of the rural society those days. The main purpose of the thesis is to consider what motivated folk authors to note down their stories and experience in chronicles. The alarming fact is that the post-war historiography has caused a lot of confusion over the true...
