MARTIN ZLATOHLÁVEK, PHD. Dissertation entitled Monastic rules and muses. The capuchin friars in the service of the art in early Baroque Bohemia set out for the purpose of research to the neglected theme of the Capuchin brothers - painters on the border between Mannerism and the Baroque era. This phenomenon in painting, which is not only characteristic for the order of the Capuchins, but also of other ecclesiastical orders, has never been more comprehensive. The Capuchin brother Paolo Piazza came to the Czech lands with first capuchin brothers; in his paintings he is inspired of the Venetian school of the 16th century. He was a versatile painter, he created not only painting on canvases, but also made wall paintings and his painting manuscript was not uniformly defined. Paolo Piazza worked in the capuchin monasteries in Prague and Brno during the reign of Rudolph II, for the emperor himself he created several artworks. Piazza's work has also been preserved in the engravings of the Sadeler family. Thanks to these engravings, several Piazza's compositions with a set iconographic type have spread to European fine arts. From the...

Evolution and Form of the three-aisle hall type layout in Bohemian sacral architecture to the mid-15th century
Beránek, Jan ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee) ; Benešovská, Klára (referee)
Evolution and form of the three-aisle hall type layout in Bohemian sacral architecture to the mid-15th century The hall church with two, three and rarely more aisles in German described as "Hallenkirche" is usually defined as having the aisles of the same or almost the same height as opposed to the basilica. With this type of organization the main nave is lit only indirectly because there is no space for basilica type windows. Other variants or transitional types are pseudohalls, sometimes also called pseudobasilicas (in German terminology Staffenhalle and Stufenhalle), which differ from the main type by having an elevated nave without the aforementioned direct light sources. These distinctions stem from a thought construct of art history which strives for strict taxonomy in their source material. The diversity of medieval architecture nevertheless proves that there is cannot be drawn a clear and decisive line between the basilical and hall type layouts, just as the distinction between the longitudinal and central floor plans. This is connected to the cultural semantics of the different types and the even more complicated question of the intentions of the choice. The hall type is spread all across medieval Europe from the Romanesque era to the end of the Middle Ages. This type of architecture was...

Havlicová, Jindřiška ; Nespěšná Hamsíková, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
Renesanční proměna sídla v Horšovském Týně za Jana mladšího Popela z Lobkowicz po roce 1547 Resumé Původně biskupský gotický hrad, který vznikl v polovině 13.století, získal roku 1539 Jan mladší Popel z Lobkowicz. Za jeho života byl po roce 1547 gotický hrad přestavěn v renesanční zámek. Jan mladší Popel z Lobkowicz byl významnou osobností své doby a tato skutečnost se odrazila také ve výzdobě zámku v Horšovském Týně. V ineriérech architektury, navržené italským architektem Agostinem Gallim, nechal Jan vzniknout rozsáhlou malířskou výzdobu. Nejpozoruhodnější je zachycení zemského soudu prostřednictvím erbů jeho členů z roku 1558. Po smrti Jana mladšího Popela z Lobkowicz spravovala sídlo jeho třetí manželka Alžběta z Roggendorfu spolu s Janovým dědicem Kryštofem. V roce 1587 dosáhl plnoletosti Kryštofův bratr Vilém, který se získal Horšovský Týn. Přestože Jan mladší Popel z Lobkowicz byl katolíkem, Vilém se velmi brzy přiklonil k protestantismu, což se stalo osudným dalšímu vývoji zámku v Horšovském Týně. Po bitvě na Bílé hoře mu byl majetek zkonfiskován a roku 1623 prodán hraběti Maxmiliánu z Trauttmansdorffu.
