Religious and church life in the Central Bohemia countryside between 1848 and 1948: case of Mirošovice region
Tomek, Michal ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Foltýn, Dušan (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the topic of religious life in the Mirošovice microregion. Its aim is to present the religiosity of the local inhabitants in individual villages of the micro-region and its changes during the period 1848-1948. In order to provide the necessary context, some events and developmental trends that do not fall directly into this time period are also presented, but are nevertheless essential for understanding regional religiosity. The time frame between these years is chosen due to the two revolutionary years of significance for the Czech lands. The revolutionary year 1948 has been chosen because of the harsh anti-religious policy imposed by the communists, which had a profound effect on the church and religious life of the region. The author also discusses the most important churches that were of great importance to the people of the region, not only in their religious life. These churches are primarily the Roman Catholic Church, which had its deanery in Mnichovice and the parish in Hrusice. Also important was the Czechoslovak Hussite Church having its separate congregation in Mnichovice. Furthermore, the work focuses on church buildings and parishes in the region. It also introduces figures who had a major share in the religiosity of the inhabitants, such as local priests...
(Neo)Classical Palaces in the Hradec Králové Region - Comparison, Current State and Cultural Significance
Michálková, Petra ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Foltýn, Dušan (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the topic of (neo)classical castle architecture in the Hradec Králové Region. Its aim is to examine the listed castles in the region built in the (neo)classicist style based on predefined criteria, which it places in the context of generally accepted architectural theory. There is a large amount of (neo)classical architecture in the region that could not be covered in the thesis, and therefore, also due to the continuity with the bachelor thesis, only castle architecture is chosen. The work is interdisciplinary in nature and extend in the historical, architectural and educational fields. The present study uses the method of comparison based on my own field research and the study of contemporary photographs and postcards. One of its sub-objectives is to come to terms with the concepts of classicism, empire and neoclassicism and to take its own position on them. The castle is first placed in its historical context and provides an overview of the events that led to the (neo)classical reconstruction or new building. A detailed architectural analysis is included into the generally applicable (neo)classical theory or architectural elements typical of the style. These facts are then compared and analysed in order to observe their similarities and differences and to find...
Benjamin Košut - the life and work of an evangelical pastor
Sedliský, Filip ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (referee)
The work deals with the life and work of the evangelical pastor Benjamin Košut (1822-1898). Košut served at the congregation in Borová, Velenice, but mainly at St. Clement's in Prague. During his service in Prague, he contributed to the periodical Českobratrský hlas, of which he was also responsible editor. At this time, among other things, he took part in a dispute with his opponents, who were inclined towards the neo- Calvinist approach to the reformed faith. Košut was suspended for his views and had to defend himself in disciplinary proceedings. During the proceedings, he was found guilty, but after signing a written undertaking, he was allowed to return to his pastoral activity. Košut is in many ways an interesting personality. He had a thoroughly rationalistic approach to faith, he was not afraid to break certain dogmas. He saw God as a loving fatherly figure who considers people his children, rejecting the completely negative anthropology of orthodox Calvinism. For Košut, Jan Hus was a great inspiration and probably the greatest personality of the Czech reformation, to whom he dedicated many sermons full of admiration. Košut's Christianity was also very patriotic. The work is based to a lesser extent on secondary literature, but also mainly on the analysis of primary sources. It contains an...
"All the Saints, Pray for Us." Bohemian Patrons in the Prints of the Prague Archdiocese from the mid-16th to 17th Centuries
Kupková, Kristina ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Sládek, Miloš (referee)
(in English): The submitted diploma thesis deals with the analysis of the textual image of the Czech provincial patrons (Adalbert, Amabilia, Agnes, Cyril and Methodius, Five Saint Brothers, Günter, Hedwig, Hroznata, Ivan, Mlada, John of Nepomuk, Norbert, Procopius, Sigmund, Wenceslas, Vitus, Vojslava and Zdislava) based on hagiographic prints published in the Prague diocese. The beginning of the studied period (i.e. the period in which the texts were published) is defined as the reoccupation of the Prague archiepiscopal see by Anton Brus in 1563 and the associated beginnings of the restoration of the position of the Catholic Church. The upper time limit is then the mid-1650s, when the first phase of the recatholization gradually ceased and the thematic literary production increased in quantity. The thesis examines the contemporary formation of holiness and its types, comments on their individual aspects, compares them with each other, and attempts to provide a deeper understanding of the religious life and patriotism of early modern Bohemia. The present study uses individual methodological approaches and moves between history and history of literature. Key words: Prague Dioces; Second Half of the 16th Century; First Half of the 17th Century; Patron Saints of Czech Lands; Patriotism; Hagiography;...
"To become useful to church and state ". Joseph II 's General Seminaries on the example of the Seminary in Hradisko u Olomouce
Hanáková, Petra ; Tinková, Daniela (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
This master's thesis deals with the phenomenon of general seminars and the reform of theological studies carried out by Josef II in the Habsburg Monarchy between 1783 and 1790, with a particular focus on the seminar in Hradisko u Olomouce. The thesis will be divided into three main chapters. The first chapter provides a more general overview of the overall system of seminars, the most important debates on their establishment, and to some extent (as far as sources and existing historiography allow) a comparison of conditions in various seminars in the monarchy. The second chapter then focuses on the Olomouc seminar itself and partially fills in the more general structure outlined in the first chapter with specific data from the Moravian-Silesian province. An important part is also the presentation of specific teaching materials used in the seminar. The third chapter concentrates on the students (primarily using the example of boarders of the Olomouc seminar). Their daily schedule will be introduced, along with the overall ideal of proper spiritual conduct, which state authorities followed when opening the seminar. At the end of the chapter, specific students of the seminar and their fates will be presented. General seminaries (Generalseminarien), Joseph II., The Age of Enlightenment, Josephinism, Education...
Missionary Jan Kořiska and the end of recatholization in Moravia
Kadlec, Daniel ; Tinková, Daniela (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with the life of a priest and missionary Jan Kořiska (1730 - 1790?), the most diligent performer of recatholization in the last generation of Moravian missionaries. The thesis is the first attempt at a complex view of this priest's life. It proceeds both from ecclesiastical and profane archive sources, mostly never used previously. These are mainly the protocols of Olomouc Episcopal Consistory, files of Brno Gubernium and Tribunal concerning secret non-Catholics in Moravia and (partially published) documents from the investigation of Wallachian rebellion in 1777. The aim of this thesis is to show the mutual communication between surviving baroque and emerging enlightenment mentalities and to complete the series of events which lead to the issue of the Patent of Toleration.
Changes and growth of a small town in time of normalization - the example of Benešov u Prahy
Houzar, Jakub ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Najbert, Jaroslav (referee)
The thesis deals with the transformation of Benešov u Prahy from a backward town with nine thousand inhabitants to the centre of Podblanicko area with almost twice as many residents. The change did not come easily. The inhabitants and offices dealt with many problems ranging from inadequate transport and business networks to insufficient capacity in school facilities. Within twenty years (1970s and 1980s), Benešov underwent an immense transformation, which is evident at first sight. Prefabricated housing estates were built on the outskirts of the town and in densely built-up areas that had been redeveloped for building purposes. Not even the monuments escaped this remediation. The present-day appearance of Benešov is largely a reflection of fifteen to twenty years of construction activities in the monitored period. How has Benešov changed over the 20 years of the reporting period? What kind of transformation have all parts of the town undergone (center, peripherals)? Was it possible to offer sufficient capacity (housing, work) to new arrivals and old residents? How did Benešov cope in terms of services (education, transport, apartments, business network) with almost twice the number of inhabitants? How was everyday life in transformed Benešov in this period? This work tries to answer these...
