The bachelor thesis follows a historical development and conservation of the Philosophical Hall of the library of Premonstratensian Monastery at Strahov, whose exclusive interior equipment was transferred out from the sister monastery in Louka near Znojmo and thus protected againts the destructive effects of the Josef II reforms. The new emerging building of the library at Strahov was adapted for the monumental architectural bookcases in the spirit of the late Baroque Classicism style. Abbot V. J. Mayer, the main initiator of the birth of Philosophical Hall, came with the idea to purchase the Louka's cabinets. He wished to preserve the most authentic form of the Biblioteka in Louka and so he called up F. A. Maulbertsch to realize the similar ceiling fresco. In 2010, the shell and interior restoration was completed, which brought a number of key findings and also application of the recent methodological approaches of conservation.

This also applies to other attached pieces of art as the bronze inscription on the lid by the sculptor Otmar Oliva (*1952) and the panel with Špidlik's motto, which is to be found behind the sarcophagus....
