Abstract | Full Text

This paper raises the question of the relations between Ferdinand I and the monasteries, which has not been much studied, using Bohemian sources, with the exception of works of the 19th and early 20th century (Klement Borový, Václav Vladivoj Tomek, Zikmund Winter). The author tries as far as possible to give the sources and the extent of the study to describe various types of relationships on the example of convents in Prague, and seeks to take account of the different types of religious institutions such as women’s, contemplative and mendicants’ convents. The differences between them, however, are blurred in this context. He intentionally leaves aside the question of the relations between this ruler and the Jesuit Order.
