Ancient Mythology in the Poetry of Authors of the František Palacký's Generation
Taubeová, Kristýna ; Kepartová, Jana (advisor) ; Pokorný, Jiří (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the analysis of the use of mythological creatures of the Greco- Roman pantheon in the poetry of selected contemporaries of the Czech historian František Palacký. The first part of the thesis focuses on the analysis of the context of the era and the literary inspirations, both ancient and contemporary, that may have influenced the works of these authors. The second part deals with the actual analysis of the collections and the analysis of the mentioned beings. The National Revival is a time focused largely on the nations history and mythology, yet the ancient traditions that inspired European literature were not forgotten. Ancient culture was still considered very valuable at that time and authors tried to bring its mythology closer to the Czech or Slavic one. This was done to a large extent, especially in the poetry of Ján Kollár. His versions of the Slavic gods, which are easy to compare to the Greek and Roman ones (for example, Mílek, who is the Czech version of Amor) also influence the poetry of his contemporaries. However common versions of the gods as they were known from the works of classical authors (Ovid, Homer), were also used. These gods are mainly used in the poems as symbols for their domains. Luna was most often used as a symbol of the moon and Zephyrus...
Roman Senate and Army. The Crisis of the Roman Empire in 235-238.
Mošnička, Martin ; Kepartová, Jana (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
This thesis explores the period of crisis that the Roman Empire entered after the death of Alexander Severus, as described by the British historian and writer Harry Sidebottom in his three-part novel The Throne of Caesars: Iron and Rust, Steel and Blood, Fire and Sword. The work focuses primarily on the role of the army in the chaos of the third century AD. It contains questions of philosophy (Epicureans, Stoics, Pythagoreans), religion (traditional Roman and indigenous cults and superstitions), literature (knowledge of literature among intellectuals versus ordinary soldiers as obedient machines), the question of the feeling of superiority of the Romans compared to the defeated barbarians from the north, patriotism, careerism, egoism, self-sacrifice, friendship, propaganda, etc. Propaganda and manipulation of public opinion, so important for every single emperor, is then discussed in more detail in my work. The lives and evaluation of the significance of the works of those ancient authors (namely Héródiános, Aurelius Victor, Zósimos, Ammianus Marcellinus) are briefly described at the beginning of the work, from which important information on the topic can be obtained. I also consider it crucial to briefly introduce the military emperors to the reader (these are Alexander Severus, Maximinus Thrace,...
Ancient Mythology in the Trilogy Starcrossed of Josephina Angelini
Roudná, Karolína ; Kepartová, Jana (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
This Bachelor thesis focuses on analysis of Ancient Mythology in the Starcrossed Trilogy of Josephina Angelini. The inspiration by ancient Greek mythology is evident throughout the series, as it's practically a transposition of the Trojan War into 21st century context. The characters are reincarnated mythical heroes of the Trojan War. The thesis contains a section dedicated to ancient Greek myths in general. The main goal of the thesis is to encapsulate all similarities, differences and elements received from the ancient Greek originals. The author accentuates the need for glossaries added into works with ancient Greek themes, since a reader who is not familiar with these might be rather confused by their adaptation in a completely different storyline. To achieve the abovementioned goal, the thesis provides literary-scientific context, definitions of key concepts, analysis of the narrator, composition, time space etc. Chapters containing transcribed interviews with book influencers provide readers' reception of the Starcrossed series on Czech literary scene and abroad. The author has performed analysis of the Starcrossed series by Josephine Angelini via comparing the series to, above all, Homer's Iliad. These works are further supplemented by literature on ancient Greek mythology and literary...

The second part deals with the impact of the Roman presence in Germania on the power of Cherusci chieftains and aristocracy. The internal relations in the tribe, influenced by the Roman luxurious gifts and financial support of the Cherusci aristocrats, are researched. The next chapter focuses on the romanization of the chieftain sons on the example of Arminius and Flavus, the sons of Cherusci chieftain Segimer. The last part deals with the retinue of chieftains, with the Cherusci presence in the auxiliaries of the Roman army, with the Germanic personal guard of the emperors of the Julio-Claudian dynasty (the so-called Germani corporis custodes), and with the Roman impact on the Germanic warfare. In the research, the analysis of primary and secondary sources was used. The conducted research...
