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...

Roman Senate and Army. The Crisis of the Roman Empire in 235-238.
Mošnička, Martin ; Kepartová, Jana (advisor) ; Zdichynec, Jan (referee)
This thesis explores the period of crisis that the Roman Empire entered after the death of Alexander Severus, as described by the British historian and writer Harry Sidebottom in his three-part novel The Throne of Caesars: Iron and Rust, Steel and Blood, Fire and Sword. The work focuses primarily on the role of the army in the chaos of the third century AD. It contains questions of philosophy (Epicureans, Stoics, Pythagoreans), religion (traditional Roman and indigenous cults and superstitions), literature (knowledge of literature among intellectuals versus ordinary soldiers as obedient machines), the question of the feeling of superiority of the Romans compared to the defeated barbarians from the north, patriotism, careerism, egoism, self-sacrifice, friendship, propaganda, etc. Propaganda and manipulation of public opinion, so important for every single emperor, is then discussed in more detail in my work. The lives and evaluation of the significance of the works of those ancient authors (namely Héródiános, Aurelius Victor, Zósimos, Ammianus Marcellinus) are briefly described at the beginning of the work, from which important information on the topic can be obtained. I also consider it crucial to briefly introduce the military emperors to the reader (these are Alexander Severus, Maximinus Thrace,...
