Documents to the history of the Napoleonic Wars at the family archives of Kinský. To the Czech ancestors of prince Józef Poniatowski
Švehelka, Ondřej ; Bělina, Pavel (advisor) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
This paper regards two mutually linked objectives. The first of them is to picture the history of the old and significant dynasty of Kinský in the eighteenth century and during the Napoleonic Wars, which is supposed to back up the second and main objective, namely to describe the lifetimes of a few ancestors of the Polish prince and army-leader Józef Poniatowski, who was in service of Napoleon's armies, and who died in 1813 at the Battle of Leipzig. These ancestors were his parents Andrzej Poniatowski and Marie Terezie Kinská, following her father Jan Leopold Kinský of the Chlumec count stem. Andrzej Poniatowski and Leopold Kinský embody a certain similarity - they both have been wrongfully effaced; while Andrzej by his son, Leopold by his more famous ancestors who notably affected the Habsburg Empire in the end of the seventeenth and in the first half of the eighteenth century. I would like to, therefore, point out the importance of these two men, too.

Life after Life. The Revenants in the Early Modern Period Bohemia Lands.
Chalupová, Helena ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
The master's thesis deals with one of the specifics of the cultural history of the Czech lands in the Early Modern period - i. e. the general perception of the afterlife (approximately between 1500 and 1800) and revenant issues. A revenant is meant originally a human being, who, after his death, for various reasons returns to the light of the living world, with exhibits of material (revived corpses, zombies, vampires, fexts) and immaterial (spirits, white ladies, wild hunting). In this respect, the main source are Czech demonological legends. One part of the study is to evaluate the social, religious and cultural aspects that had effect on what was said above in the specific historical period. The main emphasis is placed on the individual cases of revenants in the Czech lands, preserved in historical sources, as well as comparison with the same case in other European countries. The study will also focus on the description of biographies of historical personalities, drawing conclusions about what may have caused the conviction of being revenant.

Preacher and exemplum between scholar and popular culture in early modern period
Tomášek, Vojtěch ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
This study deals with a two terms used in the context of culture and social history: the preacher and the exemplum. We depart from six Czech ear1y modem sermons published in the 17th and 18th century, especially from specific parts of them, those in which we can find those short moralizing stories, exempla. We analyse exemplum in its oral form as an communicative point between the preacher and his audience in the larger context of communication between a scholar and popular culture. Here we present sermonic exemplum as a specific type of ear1y modem medium. This study would attempt to outline some features of this communicative situation, especially preacher' s tendency to reform and discipline some aspects of everyday life in his community, that is everyday common problems of man and woman, problems of distributing gender roles and interconnected problems of drinking, domestic violence and sexuality. We have found two specific ways of communication preacher uses in exemplum: direct satire and tendentional description of ritua1. Speaking of the second one we expose the specific method, by which our preacher tries to change positive meaning of traditional ritual into the negative one. Therefore we c1aim that preacher wants to persuade his audience of absurdity inherent to use of some medical or magical...
Jan Jiří Harant z Polžic a Bezdružic: the Czech nobleman and emigrant
Mauleová, Blanka ; Mikulec, Jiří (advisor) ; Bobková, Lenka (referee)
Zatímco jméno a osobnost Kryštofa Haranta z Polžic a Bezdružic jsou v naší zemi všeobecně známy, jeho mladší bratr Jan Jiří není příliš známý ani mezi zájemci o historii. Na rozdíl od Kryštofa se totiž nezapsal do dějin žádným významným činem a jeho život nebyl natolik pestrý nebo dramatický, aby upoutával pozornost. Na jeho smrti nebylo nic zvláštního, není ani známo přesné datum jeho úmrtí ani místo, kde je pochován. Svým způsobem života se výrazně neodlišoval od svých současníků ze stejného prostředí a společenské vrstvy. Na rozdíl od nich si však v průběhu čtvrt století vedl záznamy o soudobých událostech i osudech vlastní rodiny. Jeho Paměti tak rozšířily řadu osobních svědectví z pobělohorských Čech. Navíc se záhy, po odchodu autora za hranice, staly jednou z nečetných dobových reflexí a výpovědí z pera českých exulantů. Jan Jiří Harant má pro české historiky raného novověku význam také jako autor krátkého spisku o životě Kryštofa Haranta. Ačkoliv je toto několikastránkové dílko, zamýšlené Janem Jiřím jako úvod k jeho překladu bratrova cestopisu do němčiny, nesouvislé a útržkovité, obsahuje několik pozoruhodných informací o Kryštofu Harantovi. l Vztahují se převážně k jeho působení na dvoře Rudolfa II. a některé z nich jsou spíše anekdotické povahy.
Historian Jan Florian Hammerschmidt and his method of using primary sources. (As demonstrated in his work Prodromus Gloriae Pragenae)
Ciglerová, Jana ; Mikulec, Jiří (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
This thesis explores the historiographical treatise Prodromus Gloriae Pragenae by Jan Florian Hammerschmidt (1652-1735). The study examines in close detail the structure and contents of this important work of Baroque historiography and topography, and attempts to identify the specific features of Hammerschmidt's treatment of his topic, primarily in comparison with his manuscript work Historia Pragensis. The focus is on outlining the quantity and variety of the sources used and on the evaluation of Hammerschmidt's approach to sources and historiographic literature. His (un-)critical approach to his predecessors as well as his research method are demonstrated on a number of examples.
Commendam the Knights of the Cross with the Red Star in Cheb durning the commandery of Georg Runner of Chvalšiny (1609-1632)
Knetlová, Hana ; Mikulec, Jiří (advisor) ; Hojda, Zdeněk (referee)
This work is dedicated to the history of Commendam the Knights of the Cross with the Red Star and to its hospital in the period, in which was Georg Runner functioning. He was working there in 1609-1632. I tried to put this person into connection with historical events in this region. I handle in detail about the religion circumstances in time of the biggest rapid development of Lutheranism, about conflict, which comes up between local catholic and protestant people, and about the first progress of rekatolization in Cheb, too. Another problem contains progress of economics estate of the commendam in this time. There are some property and jural conflicts for example. With economics situation are close connected the war affairs of very big importance in this time and this about is another chapter. Its place has the question of administration and common life in hospital. Authentic documents of the Knights of the Cross are the most significant resources for this work.
Lower nobility in the towns and market-towns of the central Pilsen region in 17th and 18th century
Chmelíř, Václav ; Čechura, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
The central Pilsen region is the useful example to study the lower nobility in 17th and 18th century. Some sources are well preserved in few towns in the region. The lowest nobility settled in royal towns (Plzen, Rokycany) and liege market-towns (Dobrany, Mesto Touškov, Všeruby). Different origins of this gentles constitute the most visible differences between this types of towns. In the royal towns, the main group of nobility was formed by commons with blazon and plain peerage. In the most cases, the nobility of higher states left till the middle of 17th century. During 17th and 18th century, the privilege of Pilsen constitutes a possibility to become a estate-owner in the Bohemian Kingdom. There was a particular lower nobility group in some of previously mentioned market towns. A presence of small estates in their neighborhood affected them to a significant extent. Their disappearance was the main reason, why lower nobility left Dobrany. On contrary, Všeruby and Mesto Touškov held their lower nobility during that age. The sources indicate a possible connection of discussed, in fact, foreign element in a liege society of market-towns to agriculture and brewing. The nobility tried to keep their privileges, but they had to submit to the legal system of liege property eventually. Part of local commons was...
