Šmídová, Lucie ; Šebek, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Novotný, Vojtěch (referee) ; Jonová, Jitka (referee)
This dissertation offers an insight into the couple Alena and František Falerski, whose lives were considerably marked by totalitarian regimes. It examines in detail the dynamism of the changes to their spiritual lives within the context of the political, social and ecclesiastical transformations after 1918, with an emphasis on the periods 1939-1945 and 1948-1989. This work presents the spirituality of two intellectuals and church laity from the point of view of the respective development, external appearance, identity, opinions, genders and the reactions to oppression. This study combines a predominantly biographical approach with historical anthropology, where the standard work based on written sources has been expanded by the use of the oral history method. Key words Totalitarian, spirituality, Roman Catholic Church, political prisoner, marriage.

The care of historical liturgical textiles is often not given the attention it deserves. Liturgical textiles represent an important group where historical textiles have been preserved to this day. Three basic areas can be created for the care of historical liturgical textiles: Interest and enlightenment/ education of the public The historical liturgical textile, although no longer fulfilling its function (it is not used in the liturgy), remains an important cultural heritage of the Church. The actual place where it is usually preserved are the sacristies, oratories or parishes, where, however, it does not always have the appropriate conditions. Although according to the requirements of the church and the state monument care it is desirable to protect historical liturgical textiles (although it is not listed as a part of parish property and should be kept in inventory), sometimes it is destroyed (incineration, improper storage, etc.) or even sold. In this case, it should be kept in mind that this is an illegal disposal, in which irreversible losses occur (historically valuable liturgical textiles are destroyed), moreover, in the case of sale not only that the parish property is being defrauded, and the priests are not always able to estimate the true value and textiles are sold below cost and can later be seen on online sales portals at a much higher price. Parish clergy are often overwhelmed and do not see historical liturgical textiles as something important to which they should pay more attention. It should therefore be recalled that the vast majority of it is the property of the parish, etc., which cannot be disposed of arbitrarily, and in addition also consecrated objects that deserve respect. Sacral art, including historical liturgical textiles, is the cultural heritage of the Church that needs to be protected. Art has not only a liturgical function, but also an evangelistic one. When dealing with historical liturgical textiles, it is desirable to contact experts, the relevant diocesan conservation center, specialist workplaces of a museum or monument institute. Inventory and storage Historical textiles should be kept in the inventory of the relevant parish (monastery, etc.) or state institutions in the appropriate forms. Inventory records together with archival documents can help to shed light on the identification, but also the closer identification (material, origin, etc.) of the monument. It is not possible to demand that the conditions of historical textiles in the specialized depositories of various institutions would be ensured in parishes. Unfortunately, there is often not enough space even in specialized diocesan depositories. Especially in the case of "commonly preserved parameters", it is desirable to store them in suitable places where they will not be undesirably damaged (temperature conditions, humidity, dust, insect damage, rodents). Restoration and presentation Restoration must be entrusted to appropriate experts. Historical liturgical textiles, as well as other sacral monuments, prove the cultural richness of the Church, which, however, has an irreplaceable pastoral and evangelistic mission. Particularly unused historical parameters can thus be part of short-term (eg Church Night) or long-term exhibitions. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the suitability of the method of their presentation and to document any loans. It must not be used inappropriately (clothing for the Three Kings collection, theatrical costume, etc.)

Discursive Transformation during the Czech Catholic Exile in Italy 1962-1969
Blažek, Ondřej ; Šebek, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Šmíd, Marek (referee) ; Jonová, Jitka (referee)
This thesis deals with events during the Czech Catholic exile in Italy with a focus on the 1960's. It provides a closer look at the institutional and discursive changes that took place at the time of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and the subsequent stay of Cardinal Josef Beran in Rome (1965-1969). The work focuses mainly on the development of the publishing house Christian Academy, the Velehrad Center and the Nepomucenum Papal College where the leading figures of Czech Catholic exile, mostly priests, worked. By using the method of historical discourse analysis the work studies how the pro-conciliary orientation which defined itself in opposition towards conservative tendency in the Church became increasingly predominant in the exile environment. Last but not least, the work also shows how the form of Catholic exile discourse in Italy was influenced by the changing relationship between papal diplomacy and Communist Czechoslovakia.
Estate dress of the Catholic priesthood and its image in the visual arts. History - Changes - Meaning
Martinek, Radek ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Hlobil, Ivo (referee) ; Jonová, Jitka (referee)
In terms of the current rapidly growing investigative interest in the history of clothing (whether according to seasons, professional groups or geographic areas) the estate dress of Christian priesthood stands rather aside. It is caused also by the fact that within the overall history of clothing this subject represents a very specific group characterized by uninterrupted continuity, rich symbolism affirmed not only by the church regulations, but also by a local tradition. The theological teaching on priesthood and priestly estate formed as early as in the early centuries, nevertheless it did not remain a mere teaching, but it also had a practical impact on the life of a clergyman and his surroundings. The priest became the guarantor of social order and its associated values. Thus, a visible distinction between the priest and the rest of the community got even a symbolic dimension. This dissertation traces the ways in which the teaching on priesthood and priestly mission changed in the Christian community on the background of the general Church history. The priestly dress clearly communicates how a priest was perceived by a community, by the Church (or more precisely by the canon law), as well as how he perceived himself. All this is compared with extant visual material and analysis of surviving...
