The development of the town of Nymburk
Kolbaba, Lukáš ; Dvořáková, Michaela (advisor) ; Samek, Tomáš (referee)
The nineteenth century, characterized by its industrial revolution, has brought many changes to people's lives. Nymburk as one of the centers of the middle Polabí, is a example when industry has changed the everyday life of the city's inhabitants. The task of the thesis is to describe the key sectors and, consequently, related events that have had an impact on the lives of the local population, and at the same time they have been a change for many centuries, rather, a rural town in an industrial city. The work starts from the earliest beginnings of the city to better illustrate the boom times and the fall of the city. Emphasis is placed above all on what took place in Nymburk itself, although it was very often the historical milestones for the whole country. The work will be based primarily on regional historical literature.
Rakovnik 1620 Battlefield (Contribution to the Metal-Detector Prospecting of the Early Modern Battlefields)
Šámal, Zdeněk ; Matoušek, Václav (advisor) ; Vařeka, Pavel (referee)
In 2010 the Museum of T. G. M Rakovník began an archaeological survey on a large scaled area, where from 27th of October till the 5th of November 1620, military clashes between the Estates army and the allied forces of the Roman Emperor with the Catholic League took place, just before the battle on Bílá hora. The research, originally associated with the preparation of regional exhibition, grew over the years into a unique project in the field of post-Medieval military activities archaeology. It has two major pillars. First was the field survey, which also covers air prospection, which identifies remains and also offers a geodetic survey of the debris field fortifications, which the army had built. The second is the use of detector prospecting in connection with the GPS data and its subsequent projection into maps. In the past twenty years, metal detectors became a sensitive problem not only in the Czech archaeology sphere. But they are also a useful and efective tool. Experience from abroad shows that an archaeological research of battlefields can't be done without detector prospecting. So far the detector research of the Rakovník battlefield has lasted four seasons (2010-2014) and its main focus has been on finding and localising the lead bullets for firearms used in The Thirty Year War. It was...
Adam Pavel Slavata (1603-1657)
UHLÍKOVÁ, Patricie
In the bachelor thesis author tried to describe the life fate of the South Bohemian aristocrat Adam Pavel Slavata (1603-1657) in context to the period events at the beginning of the 17th century. Author mainly focused on different concepts of life between Adam Pavel and his father Vilém Slavata of Chlum and Košumberk (1572-1652), which came after the divorce of Adam Pavel and Marie Markéta of Eggenberg in the early 1630´s. The reverse of life was mainly reflected in Adam Pavel´s views on the ruling court in Vienna and the court career, which was essential to Vilém's life. Adam Pavel left the Imperial court permanently and settled in Nová Bystřice, where he managed over the Slavata dominion, together with the officers who worked in Jindřichův Hradec and in Telč, during the Thirty Years War. Author used the personal correspondence of Vilém Slavata from Chlum and Košumberk, which is stored in the Family Archives of the Slavata in the department of the State Archives of Třeboň in Jindřichův Hradec. Based on extensive scientific literature on nobility, written especially by Petr Maťa and Václav Bůžek, author has compiled the life story of the individual from the highest circles of the society.
Communicative image of military conflicts of the Czech Estates Uprising 1618-1620
ČÍŽEK, Josef
This submitted paper aims to give a communicative image of the conflicts of the Czech Estates Uprising in the south of Bohemia. The focal point of the research has been three clashes of Protestant and Catholic armies. The first was the Battle of Lomnice, which took place on November 11, 1618, between the allied estates troops of Jindřich Matyáš Thurn and Jiří Fridrich Hohenlohe and the catholic military assembly of Karel Bonaventura Buquoy. After the battle that was victorious for the generals of the estates, the military actions moved to the area around České Budějovice, which was besieged by the army of the estates, as the catholic troops withdrew here. Ending the siege of the South Bohemian metropolis caused the third conflict, which has become part of this work. The battle at Záblatí took place on June 10, 1619, by the troops of Petr Arnošt of Mansfeld, the general of the rebellious Czech estates, and the military corps of imperial mercenaries commanded by Karel Bonaventura Buquoy. The aim of the author was to capture the fullest range of information framework, which was completed by reports of these military clashes of the Czech Estates Uprising. As part of research activities, attention was paid first to the works which explored the battle of Záblatí from political and military point of view. This view became a basic framework in which the research was conducted. However, the work should not only to recapitulate the conclusions already drawn, but the aim was to look at the examined issue with a new look. Such a view was based in the research of either new or to-nowoverlooked sources, such as the period news that historical science began to discover in recent years. A relatively large part of the historical community took the argument in saying that under the tide of propaganda and perspice it is not possible to find the truth about individual events of the Czech Estates Uprising. It would certainly be possible to claim that credible authentic information was scarce in the leaflets of the Czech Estates Uprising. These who contracted the prints, however, attempted to influence the readers of contemporary journalism and help them orientate in their intellectual worlds that were in this way uncovering to us. Another possibility for viewing the conflicts of the Czech Estates Uprising was offered through the view of the ordinary villages and towns inhabitants that were coming into contacts or were just observers of the South Bohemian battlefield. Although the preservation of the sources of the early 17th century from the environment of towns and villages was far from abundant, we managed to find some authentic testimonies that evaluated the battles of the Czech Estates Uprising from the very distinctive angles of view. The author interpreted sources of song lyrics reporting to the rural environment and sources of interurban correspondence, through which he tried to uncover at least part of the mental world of ordinary residents of South Bohemia affected by war in the first third of the 17th century and their view on the South Bohemian battlegrounds. Similarly, he also proceeded in the interpretation of the noble correspondence, whether it were warriors or the aristocrats affected by war misfortunes.
Třeboň, Passau army and Bohemian revolt
TITL, David
The bachelor thesis primarily aims at describing the warrior role of the town Třeboň in two major conflicts, which affected southern Bohemia in the first half of the 17th Century - the Passau army incursion in 1611 and the Bohemian Revolt from 1618 to 1620, including next two years of persisting resistance to victorious imperial party. At this territory, there the significant military and diplomatic operations happened. They noticeably influenced the development of both conflicts. Even that in both cases Třeboň represented a strategically important fortress, its role differed. These differences were chosen by the author to be the main topic of his thesis. Therefore, a comparative approach was chosen by using the direct method and the method of "sonda" (focused on something in detail). This way the author is looking at both wartime situations and evaluating its impact on microhistory of the region.
Peace negotiations at the end of the Thirty Years' War
Vokřínek, Lukáš ; Stellner, František (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee)
The author analyses the Westphalian peace negotiations ending the Thirty Years War in order to find out to what extent it had influenced the parallel Swedish military campaigns. In the Czech Republic, it is the return of the broader analysis of this important historical event that leaded to the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. In recent years had not been given enough attention to these events, although abroad (typically in Germany) the research continues with greater intensity. The structure of the text is following. At first the author pursues the main development features of the Thirty Years War and subsequently recapitulates the way to the Westphalian peace talks since the first proposals for a final settlement of the constantly prolonging conflict after the start of diplomatic activity at the congress in the Westphalian city of Münster and Osnabrück in the (first) half of the 1640s. Then discusses the basic characteristics of the congress, among others also key delegations and their significant (or just interesting) members participating in the negotiations. Thereafter, the text continues to its core section, consisting of two parts. The first of them is about the progress of the peace negotiations on the basis of analysis of each of the main discussing issues in relation to the conflict in the...
Middle European Military Camps in 1550-1650
Andresová, Klára ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Ďurčanský, Marek (referee)
The subject of this thesis is the problematics of the military camps of Christian armies in the Central Europe between 1550-1650. We focus on the camps of the Habsburg Monarchy and German lands, yet some space is given to the situation in Poland and Hungary. The introductory chapters consist of a characterization of the source material and an overview of the present state of research. Furthermore, excursuses into several topics related to the military camps of the early modern period are made. Thus, characterizations of the crucial war conflicts of the period, contemporary strategies and tactics, principals, composition and equipment of the armies, of the ranks, and of the life of soldiers are provided. The core of this work is an interpretation and comparison of treatises written by military theorists, who dealt with the problematics of camps, namely of the works by Jan Tarnowski, Guillaume du Bellay, Leonhardt Fronsperger, Lazarus von Schwendi, Giorgio Basta, Johann Jacobi von Wallhausen, and Raimondo Montecuccoli. Additionally, an analysis of the military orders of the Roman emperor Maximilian II and of the Swedish king Gustav II Adolf is supplied, followed by memoirs and diaries of soldiers of that era, and contemporary literary fiction. Although the thesis includes brief characterizations of...
