The Social Role of Baroque Dance as an Expression of French Culture in the 17th-18th Century
Suldovská, Klára ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Tinková, Daniela (referee)
The thesis deals with the French Baroque dance la belle danse and its social context. The author proceeds by defining the concept of Baroque dance, which she characterizes in terms of dance style, and presents the sources from which we infer the form of the dance and the movement register (i.e. mainly French dance manuals). The analysis focuses on social dance, which is defined using Andriy Nahachevsky's typology of presentational and participatory dances. In the second chapter, the author places the phenomenon of dance in a broader cultural context, describing its importance in early modern society and the opportunities for dance. She emphasizes social dance, which was an integral part of Baroque festivals and balls. The important role of dance in the education of the nobleman and the role of the dance master is not overlooked. The following chapter traces whether and how the French dance style was reflected in the Czech lands. The fourth chapter is the core of the thesis, in which the author explores the social dimension of dance, thus looking at dance as a means of developing the individual's abilities and as an expression or a way of acquiring proper social etiquette. She analyses passages on social conventions and etiquette contained in selected dance manuals of the period (especially those of...
Secretly ordained bishops in the 2nd half of the 20th century. An example of the life and work of bishop Kajetán Matoušek
Šustr, Vratislav ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Koura, Petr (referee)
This thesis focuses on the life of the secretly consecrated Roman Catholic bishop Kajetán Matoušek. The author will try to compare Matoušek's life and career to the fate and work of other secretly consecrated Roman Catholic bishops who were ordained in the same historical period and served in the Prague archdiocese. The bishops are Ladislav Hlad, ThLic. Karel Otčenášek, PaedDr. and František Cardinal Tomášek. The comparison of K. Matoušek's life to the life of others is based on their individual life stages and milestones, such as childhood, studies, or motivation to become a priest, as well as the circumstances of the secret ordination. Preserved materials about the above-mentioned bishops stored in Archiv bezpečnostních složek (Security Services Archive) were used for this thesis as well as the materials found in the Archives of the Prague Archbishopric, where are stored mainly official materials. An equally important source of information is a family archive of the Novotný family, which was related to Bishop Matoušek (the Matoušek family's male line died out with Bishop Matoušek himself), from which many photographs, but also other materials analyzed in this thesis were obtained. Finally, the so-called second parish records of the St. Adalbert parish in the New Town of Prague are considered. The...
Sculptural representations of Heracles in the castles of the Kingdom of Bohemia during the baroque period. Chosen examples
Vlčková, Petra ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Kepartová, Jana (referee)
The immediate purpose of writing this thesis is to explore the sculptures of Heracles outside of the selected Baroque castles in the contemporary Ústí nad Labem Region and in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. For this assignment, I have aimed to obtain documentation concerning the decor of individual castles, based on which I further interpret sculptural works, particularly depicting this demigod, and exceptionally several other sculptures located on selected castle grounds. In addition, I also address the question of how this hero is most often depicted and what its function in the concerned areas should be. There are two parts to the final assignment- a theoretical part and a research part. In the theoretical part, I deal with the introduction of Heracles in Graeco-Roman mythology, as well as the characteristics of Baroque and its reflection in arts such as architecture, music, sculpture, literature and painting. As research methods, I chose interviews with employees of individual institutions and documentation analysis. In the research part, I briefly describe the history of selected castles and the overall artistic outdoor composition while tracking more precisely the dates of creation of the sculptures depicting this hero, as well as their authors, materials utilized and...
