Ottová, Michaela ; Pavlovský, Jiří (referee) ; Doležalová Weissmannová, Helena (advisor)
This diploma thesis deals with the adsorption of heavy metal ions on the microplastic. Specifically, lead, chromium, zinc, copper, mercury and polyethylene terephthalate was chosen as the plastic representative. Atomic absorption spectrometry (F-AAS, AMA) and FTIR with method ATR were used for the analysis. The aim of this work was to perform selected adsorption experiments, to determine the adsorption kinetics and the maximum amount adsorbed. Subsequently, the most suitable kinetic and isothermal model was determined for each element and the characteristic parameters were calculated.

The person of Bohuslav Slánský is focused on to analyze his methodological approach, selected aspects of which were adopted and, above all, further developed by the following generation.

Bachelor thesis called " Louny Gradual by Paul Melnik in 1530" first summarizes the existing literature on the topic, which occurs soon after the half of the 19th century (Chapter 1). The names of the purchaser and illuminator of the Louny Gradual are documented in the first part of the Gradual's explicit (IG 8, f. 427v). The explicit also includes the date and provenance of the Louny Gradual, which was completed in 1530 for Utraquist literary fraternity at St. Nicholas'Church in Louny (Chapter 2.4). The Louny Gradual belongs among the last written Latin Utraquist choral books. It contains one of the largest collections of Kyrie and Sequences. Paintings in both parts Gradual (IG 8a, b) are in the academic literature considered the decline in artistic standards.

The paintings in the cloister of St. Wenceslas Church in the context of wall paintings at the turn of the 16th century in Olomouc
Haragová, Vladěna ; Ottová, Michaela (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
The first part of the paper deals with the mural paintings on a Christological theme decorating the northern and eastern walls of the High Gothic ambulatory, which is a part of the National cultural monument Přemyslid Castle. Last Judgement, Annunciation, Adoration of the Magi and Adoration of the Shepherds are depicted on the northern side of the cloister. On the opposite wall between the windows there is a representation of two donators. The eastern front of the ambulatory is decorated with scenes depicting the Crucifixion, Lamentation, Resurrection and Christ with the Arma Christi. Paintings are dated successively from the late 15th century to the first two decades of the 16th century. The different dating of paintings, of course, demonstrates various inspirational sources. The study also reflects many recent discoveries that reveal the origins of the decoration of the cloister. These paintings were probably commissioned by members of the Olomouc Chapter, who were in close contact with Humanistic Societas Maierhofiana. Further the paper focuses on the wall paintings in the John the Baptist' Chapel, where the scenes adorn not only the walls, but also the vault of the eastern field. The frescos were probably created between 1493 and 1517 by the hands of several painters.

Slávková, Gabriela ; Ottová, Michaela (advisor) ; Mudra, Aleš (referee)
The Master of Zvíkov Lamenting of Christ In the 1960' s this anonymous master was called František Kotrba, according to the work of Lamenting of Christ which was found in Zvíkov Chapel. The Master was active in the first quarter of 16th century and worked in the area of south-west Bohemia (Horažďovice, Kašperské Mountains), where quite a lot of his works were found. We rank the carver among the school constituency of the Master of Žebrák Lamenting of Christ who was one of the most important artists of Podunaj school in Bohemia, working probably in České Budějovice. Secular form works through the works of the Master of Zvíkov Lamenting of Christ. In comparison with the Master of Žebrák, the carvings are mostly moderate in the expression and partly simplified. On the other hand, the relief style is absolutely clear and precise, so the polychrome on the statues could be very thin. In this bachelor assignment I aimed to place the Master of Zvíkov Lamenting of Christ into the context of time, ask and answer the questions of his existence, but my main task was to make a catalogue of the most important works attributed to this master so far.
Black Madonnas - Iconography and Worship
Hřebíčková, Jana ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Ottová, Michaela (referee)
Anotation Black Madonnas are a very specific iconographic type, which origin is not clear. They are statues or pictures of Virgin Mary, who often holds child Christ in her hands and both figures or only Mary herself have black or dark complexion. In the course of the time it was discovered that some of these Madonnas darkened secondarily thanks to the chemical changes of the carnation or the smoke of candles. Some of them had dark complexion from the beginning. In the 19. and 20. centuries different research approaches led to many theories, which try to explain the origin and the significance of these black Madonnas. Nowadays there exist several fundamental theories explaining, which iconographic influences would support the development of this image of Virgin Mary and also refer to its possible meaning. The iconography of Black madonnas is closely connected to their veneration. However the period sources illustrate that the practice directed at Black Madonnas as a particular image of Virgin Mary developed as late as the post reformation period. Majority of the black Madonnas was as the other venerated Madonnas dressed, crowned and enthroned. Frequently used words in work: ikonography Virgin Mary black Madonnas worship of Virgin Mary legends sculptures and images
