Brasová, Alena Petra ; Veverková, Kamila (advisor) ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (referee)
This master thesis deals with the history of Kladruby's monastery, about it's establishment and development during centuries. Further, it deals with the change of lifestyle in the monastery, as well as outside of it. This thesis highlights the outstanding architectural beauty of the Baroque Gothic style of Czech architects Jan Blažej Santini Aichel and Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer.
Second Vatican Council and his followers
Poslední, Petra ; Veverková, Kamila (advisor) ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (referee)
In my thesis I came to several conclusions. Holy Fathers John XXIII., Paul IV. and Francis, who followed and related the legacy of II. of the Vatican Council to, are much more popular in society than the popes, who have a different opinion and do not support the last ecumenical council. The openness of the personality and the pope's approach to the church modernization is for public absolutely necessary. Another crucial aspect for today's church is for sure the media world.
Komensky in the Light of the Life, the Epoch, Chiliasm, and Prophetic Hopes
Gmuzdková, Silvie ; Veverková, Kamila (advisor) ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (referee)
Dissonance in the manifestations of Comenius geniality - the creation of the Pansophistic program, faith in the Scriptura sacra, the belief in the prophecy of contemporary visionaries - is only apparent. The light of God's presence at any moment and eschatological expectations brings him to the feeling of necessity to revise human knowledge and start the formation of "Emendative concept". The close connection between Comenius's life deal, rational systems and irrational promotion of contemporary prophecy could be clarified by chiliasm. Faith in the Scriptura sacra played a cardinal role in his gnoseological approach to the World. Interest in didactics, philosophy, mechanics, music and theology intertwined throughout all his life, as the life of the last bishop of the Unity of the Brethren. Comenius as an agitator for "All-Emendative concept", was interesting into interpretation and into improvement the World especially, as the these Komensky in the Light of the Life, the Epoch, Chiliasm, and Prophetic Hopes attempt to show.
Johannine christianity as a term lacking analytical potential
Vytlačilová, Magdalena ; Gebelt, Jiří (advisor) ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (referee)
Cílem textu je popřít existenci tzv. janovského proudu křesťanství, popř. janovské komunity v 1. a 2. století, a ukázat, že tento termín je zavádějící a nemá analytický potenciál pro studium raného křesťanství. V první části se zabývám způsoby konstrukcí janovského křesťanství (dvou-úrovňové čtení, aplikace sociolingvistických teorií) a argumenty, které badatelé používají k doložení jeho existence (plurál v evangeliu, postava milovaného učedníka, dvacátá první kapitola evangelia, předpoklad rozdílného autorství Janových listů a čtvrtého evangelia, recepce Janova korpusu). Ve druhé části textu nabízím vlastní metodiku zkoumání společenských formací raného křesťanství, kterou aplikuji na čtvrté evangelium a Janovy listy. Argumentuji, že kdyby nějaká janovská komunita skutečně existovala a odvozovala svou nauku a praxi z těchto pramenů, nelišila by se od většinového křesťanství, a termín "janovské křesťanství" tak postrádá analytický potenciál. Hlavním argumentem textu je, že nelze z literárních a stylistických aspektů Janova korpusu odvozovat existenci distinktivního náboženského směru.
Johannine christianity as a term lacking analytical potential
Vytlačilová, Magdalena ; Gebelt, Jiří (advisor) ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (referee)
In recent decades, most scholars have understood the Gospel of John and three letters of John as a mirror to the so-called "Johannine community"/"Johannine Christianity", whose existence is usually derived from literary and compositional aspects of Johannine corpus. In the following study I am arguing that in order for the term Johannine Christianity to be relevant and meaningful for the study of early Christianity and New Testament literature, we cannot focus on literary aspects of Johannine corpus but on a comparative work and define the term through the internal structure of religion. To be a historically relevant term, the term Johannine Christianity, therefore has to bear, in the context of the New Testament and early Christianity, distinctive doctrine, ritual practices, and institution. In the first part of this paper, I am dealing with literary and stylistic aspects of the Johannine corpus (authorship of gospel and letters, genre and 21st chapter of John's gospel, the beloved disciple, etc.) and arguing that these aspects are not a definite proof of the existence of so- called Johannine community. In the second part, I am arguing that theology, ritual practices, and institutions we find in Johannine corpus, are typical for mainstream Christianity of 1. and 2. century and therefore terms "Johannine...
Reflection of Judas Iscariot in Adversus haereses by Irenes of Lyons: The Cainites and the others
Pípal, Viktor ; Ventura, Václav (advisor) ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (referee)
Resume: In this work, the author addressed the issue of close and tense relations between gnosis and early Christianity through a comparative method. Through comparative analysis, he examined the above-mentioned connections with regard to the figure of Judas Iscariot and with special regard to the Gnostic scripture with Christian elements called the Gospel of Judas, which was used by the Gnostic sect of the Sets, called cainites. Crucial to this work was the study of an important work dedicated to Gnostic currents in the second century called Adversus haereses by the Christian theologian Irenaeus of Lyon. Through excerpts from Irenaeus' work, we became thoroughly acquainted with the philosophical and theological systems of the Gnostics as well as the origin of gnosis and their main representatives. We made a new translation of the chapter on cainites from Latin, taking into account the Latin "original" version of Irenaeus' work and taking into account the older Czech translation and the English translation. We have thoroughly analyzed the important Gnostic work of the Gospel of Judas, which was discovered in Egypt up to 1800 years after it was first mentioned by Irenaeus and was considered either fanciful or lost forever, and compared it with the canonical Gospels and the Gnostic manuscripts of Nag Hammadi...

VIRTUES IN BAROQUE HAGIOGRAPHY AS CREATION OF MODERN SOCIETY IN THE CZECH LANDS
Procházková, Dana ; Lášek, Jan Blahoslav (advisor) ; Boček, Pavel (referee) ; Weis, Martin (referee)
Baroque piety has been the centre of research of some historians, who tried to describe the main and unique features of this time. They studied some sources to find out that this time`s piety was emotional, Christocentric and using some violent means. The present study tries to find typical virtues of holy people in the Baroque era and so describe the piety and name the character qualities which Jesuit scholars wanted to input and influence so that Czech people follow them. I used structural analysis to separate stories of the lives of saints and find the desired virtues. I found out that most important virtues were taken from the Gospel of Matthew, i.e. mercy, fasting and prayer. The sources tended to describe quite normal people so that there appeared to be some tendency to democratize sanctity. These findings help us to understand features of Baroque piety as well as its influence into the modern times.
