The Apostolic Nuncios in Prague during the first years of the reign of Rudolf II. and their importance for the society of the Lands of the Bohemian Crown (1578-1594)
Banďouch, Pavel ; Mikulec, Jiří (advisor) ; Knoz, Tomáš (referee) ; Černušák, Tomáš (referee)
The dissertation deals with the work of apostolic nuncios at the court of Rudolf II in the years 1578-1594. It focuses mainly on the real influence of the nuncios in this context, their demands and their mentality. After presenting the state of research to date and the motivation for the choice of the topic, the biographies of the individual nuncios are first presented, with particular reference specifically to their mission at Rudolph's court. The main source for the treatment was the correspondence between Rome and the individual nuncios. These activities of the nuncios are then presented in the context of the development of the Catholic Church, especially with regard to the evolving understanding of the papal office and the concept of Christianity as a religion. The countries of the Bohemian Crown had a specific position in this respect, since after the Hussite Wars, two religious parties/confessions coexisted in them: under both and under one. Compared to the rest of Europe, therefore, a sometimes more, sometimes less peaceful religious coexistence developed there after a period of conflict. Based on a study of the texts of two of the nuncios who held office during the period under review (Germanico Malaspina and Cesare Speciano), the dissertation then addresses the question of tolerance and...
The Development of the Cult of St. John of Nepomuk to Canonization
Herold, Miroslav ; Petráček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee) ; Royt, Jan (referee)

The origins of veneration for the medieval martyr were tied to Prague, to his tomb in the cathedral, to the Metropolitan Chapter. The saint became famous above all for the conviction that he gave his life for the preservation of the confessional secret. With his death he preserved the good name of the Czech Queen Joan, who confessed to him; on the other hand, he is said to have punished those who were disrespectful of his own posthumous reputation and grave. He therefore became an immensely popular defender of honour and reputation, values highly valued in the early modern society. Under the influence of the Prague Chapter, St. John's veneration was taken up by the Habsburgs, the Catholic rulers who ascended the throne of John's torturer, Wenceslaus IV, and John's spiritual daughter, Joan. They venerated the saint as one of the patron saints of the Bohemian kingdom, which they ruled. The recatholicization of this kingdom and its associated countries enabled the growth of St John's veneration, which by the end of the 17th century had already begun to spread vigorously beyond their borders. At the beginning of the 18th century, this...
