Lifestyle and culture in the everyday life of Russian society in the late medieval period through the eyes of western Europeans
Vavřinová, Valburga ; Picková, Dana (advisor)
The intention of the presented dissertation was to examine reports provided by foreigners coming to Rus in the 15th and 16th centuries from the aspect of cognizance and perception of customs and institutions and everyday life of the country, and to shed light on this reflection made by people from a different cultural environment. For a better illustration of the perception of a specific reality in late medieval Rus and its interpretation by Western Europeans visitors, it was necessary to place their work into a more general framework of the history of the Russian state in the time when it was "rediscovered" by Western Europe, and to recall again the development of its relations with individual Western European subjects. The work is divided into the following parts. In the first chapter Rus and the West in the 15th and 16th Centuries, the development of events is outlined, which were fundamental in forming the Muscovite state in this period and its first "opening a window to Europe". The second chapter Western Europeans as a Source of Information about Rus presents a broader and thematically wider analysis of the used sources. Its aim is to introduce the authors who, in the given period, wrote work focused on Rus and the lives of its inhabitants. Attention is paid to the circumstances in which they visited...

The care of historical liturgical textiles is often not given the attention it deserves. Liturgical textiles represent an important group where historical textiles have been preserved to this day. Three basic areas can be created for the care of historical liturgical textiles: Interest and enlightenment/ education of the public The historical liturgical textile, although no longer fulfilling its function (it is not used in the liturgy), remains an important cultural heritage of the Church. The actual place where it is usually preserved are the sacristies, oratories or parishes, where, however, it does not always have the appropriate conditions. Although according to the requirements of the church and the state monument care it is desirable to protect historical liturgical textiles (although it is not listed as a part of parish property and should be kept in inventory), sometimes it is destroyed (incineration, improper storage, etc.) or even sold. In this case, it should be kept in mind that this is an illegal disposal, in which irreversible losses occur (historically valuable liturgical textiles are destroyed), moreover, in the case of sale not only that the parish property is being defrauded, and the priests are not always able to estimate the true value and textiles are sold below cost and can later be seen on online sales portals at a much higher price. Parish clergy are often overwhelmed and do not see historical liturgical textiles as something important to which they should pay more attention. It should therefore be recalled that the vast majority of it is the property of the parish, etc., which cannot be disposed of arbitrarily, and in addition also consecrated objects that deserve respect. Sacral art, including historical liturgical textiles, is the cultural heritage of the Church that needs to be protected. Art has not only a liturgical function, but also an evangelistic one. When dealing with historical liturgical textiles, it is desirable to contact experts, the relevant diocesan conservation center, specialist workplaces of a museum or monument institute. Inventory and storage Historical textiles should be kept in the inventory of the relevant parish (monastery, etc.) or state institutions in the appropriate forms. Inventory records together with archival documents can help to shed light on the identification, but also the closer identification (material, origin, etc.) of the monument. It is not possible to demand that the conditions of historical textiles in the specialized depositories of various institutions would be ensured in parishes. Unfortunately, there is often not enough space even in specialized diocesan depositories. Especially in the case of "commonly preserved parameters", it is desirable to store them in suitable places where they will not be undesirably damaged (temperature conditions, humidity, dust, insect damage, rodents). Restoration and presentation Restoration must be entrusted to appropriate experts. Historical liturgical textiles, as well as other sacral monuments, prove the cultural richness of the Church, which, however, has an irreplaceable pastoral and evangelistic mission. Particularly unused historical parameters can thus be part of short-term (eg Church Night) or long-term exhibitions. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the suitability of the method of their presentation and to document any loans. It must not be used inappropriately (clothing for the Three Kings collection, theatrical costume, etc.)
